ABUJA—The State Security Service, SSS, Tuesday, told a Federal high court sitting in Abuja that Chief Raymond Dokpesi, the Director-General of the Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida Presidential Campaign Organisation was serially quizzed by its men because of unassailable evidence linking him to the October 1, 2010 bomb blasts in Abuja which claimed more than 10 innocent lives.
The SSS which described as laughable the N100 million suit instituted by Dokpesi against it for questioning him over his alleged role in the callous act urged the high court to dismiss the suit in limine.
In a statement filed by the SSS in court, the SSS said it was hinging its request for the dismissal of the case on the ground that Dokpesi’s suit was an invitation on the court to gag it from performing its statutory functions of probing crimes and security issues.

This position of the SSS as contained in the preliminary objection filed to Dokpesi’s suit was prepared by Dr Alex Aigbe Izinyon, SAN.
According to Dr. Izinyon in the objection, he said that Dokpesi’s suit could not be described as anything less meaningless in view of the fact that the SSS was statutorily empowered to invite any person for questioning on matters bordering on national security, including the applicant (Dokpesi).
