Reports in some section of the media have it that former Chief Security Officer to immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr. Gordon Obua, has died in the custody of the Department of Security Services (DSS).
The news is still being treated as a rumour as no word has either been heard from the family or the DSS.
A report said Obua died hours ago in Yellow House, the National Headquarters of the DSS in Abuja, where he had been detained since Thursday, July 16, 2015 on the orders of President Muhammadu Buhari.
It would be recalled that over the weekend, his family cried out that Obua, despite being diabetic and hypertensive, has been denied food, water as well as access to his drugs, his lawyer or his doctor.
An anonymous agency source has however said that Obua is not dead. According to the source, Obua is ill and being attended to.
