DSS Have Been Listening To All Conversation On MTN, Glo & Others Since 2015 For "Security Reasons"

Security sources have revealed that almost 70 percent of mobile phones in Abuja are bugged by a covert security unit made up of Department of State Services (DSS) and Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA), comprising intelligence units from the Army, Air Force, and Navy. The revelation is coming on the heels of reported plans by the Federal Government to shut down more than 21 websites which it believes to be national security threat.

According to sources, the operation followed government’s procurement of satellites and other sophisticated eavesdropping equipment in the last two years. If your phone appears to be slightly hot to touch, or you hear crackling in your connection wherever you stay in Abuja, chances are that your conversations are being listened to.

He added that distinct looking vans with different colours, mostly bland, with tiny antenna, seen around Abuja these days, were some of the means used to effect eavesdropping and other intelligence operations. The vehicles have been spotted largely around sensitive areas like the three arms zone, the federal secretariat, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Defence Headquarters, Area 10, and Apo Legislative areas and some highbrow residential areas.

Some observers have expressed anxiety over the bugging decision amidst militarisation of some parts of the country. According to the source, the operations are intended purely for security purposes.
