Ex-Gov Nyako’s CSO detained by DSS over alleged illegal N80m land deal

A former Chief Security Officer (CSO) to ex-Governor Murtala Nyako, Sheriff Rabiu, has been detained by the Directorate of State Services (DSS).

Sheriff, a retired Assistant Commissioner of Police, was arrested and detained on Friday, according to information obtained Saturday, following a petition by management of Sabore Farms Ltd, an outfit belonging to Murtala Nyako.

Murtala Nyako, a retired naval chief, was the elected governor of Adamawa State between 2007 and 2014.

Nyako who had always been a big-time farmer, returned to his expansive farm, the Sabore Farms Ltd, located at his home Mayo-Belwa local Government Area, after leaving Government House following a controversial impeachment in 2014.

According to a petition addressed to the Director of Adamawa State Command of DSS, Sheriff was instructed by Sebore Farms to buy a landed property at the cost of N80 million.

The petition alleges that Sheriff changed the sales agreement to Ashran Nigeria Limited, a company which the complainant believes belongs to Sheriff.
