DSS To ‘Produce What It Eats And Eat What It Produces’

The Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Yusuf Bichi, announced plans to produce Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), AK-47s, and other weapons for the service, with the possibility of selling them to other agencies. 
Bichi revealed this at the graduation ceremony of the Executive Intelligence Management Course, emphasizing the aim to reduce reliance on foreign countries for weapons.
He said, “We shall support the institute in its training programmes. I care for the welfare of our staff, both active and retired. We shall never go back on that. We’ll also continue to pay attention to our research and development.
“In fact, sooner or later we shall start eating what we produce, and we produce what we eat. This is coded. It means we shall start deploying some of the assets we have or the platforms we produce by ourselves, including Unmanned Area Vehicles. We are producing our own AK-47.
“When we reach the destination, we will save the country from the pains of the resources being chunked out to buy such weapons,” the DG of the secret police told the gathering attended by the Vice President, Kashim Shettima; Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi; Femi Otedola, among other prominent Nigerians.
He highlighted the forthcoming deployment of these domestically produced assets, expressing the intention to save the country resources spent on purchasing such weapons.
The DSS will continue providing intelligence support to other security agencies.
Bichi said, “We shall continue to appreciate all the agencies that partner with us in the journey so far. And I promise the other security agencies that the DSS will continue to provide you with proactive intelligence to drive your operations intelligence. We have achieved that in different parts of the country.
“And I have to thank the military and the police especially for giving us that opportunity and appreciating our own input in the fight against terrorism and insurgency in different parts of the country. We are going to sustain that by the grace of God. For the generality of the people.”
