Following the warrant of arrest purportedly obtained by operatives of the State Security Service (SSS) to effect the arrest of the former minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and Deputy National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mallam Nasir El-Rufai this morning voluntarily turns himself in at the headquarters  of the State Security Services in Abuja  .


The SSS had declared Elrufai wanted over a  statement attributed to him stating that the next  (general) election  are  likely to be violent and many people are likely going to die if any attempt was made to rig the election.

Today Mr. ElRufai was accompanied to the "Yellow House" headquarters of the SS about 9:20 am in the company of his lawyer, Bamidele Aturu,  Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, Senator Chris Ngige and a few family members.

The SSS operatives did not permit Governor Amaechi, Ngige and ElRufai family members to enter their premises.

 The operatives of SSS last Friday stormed the house of the former minister to arrest him following his refusal to honor the invitation by the headquarters of the Service.                                                   

However, El-Rufai condemned the raid and said he ignored the SSS’s invitation because it was not backed by a valid arrest warrant.                                             

The situation forced the service to obtained a warrant arrest as confirmed by the SSS spokesperson, Ms. Marilyn Ogar. The SSS later accused El-Rufai of hiding, but promised to arrest him.

Ms. Ogar boasted last week , saying,  “Let me promise you one thing, we will arrest him. He can not continue to incite members of the public, causing trouble, and expect to go scot free. No,  Nigerian, no individual is greater that the country.

“We are not puppet, and nobody can reduce us to one. Mallam El-Rufai must be made to answer for his provocative and inflammatory statement. I say it again; no Nigerian is above the law. He will surely be arrested.”

As at the time of filing this report several journalists remain in the vicinity of the offices of State Security Services office.
