The Department of State Services (DSS) invited the online editor of the newspaper, Danlami Nmodu, to its headquarters in Abuja for questioning.
A source told GISTOK newspaper that a DSS activist who called Danlami by phone on Wednesday morning said the invitation was contained in a recently published story about Kano Ecological Fund projects.
He was asked to come either Wednesday or Thursday morning. Newsdiary Online had published a story, titled: “Diplomatic backlash, legal tussle loom as FG dumps German firm over Kano Project.”
The source said after publishing the story, the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, made further facts available through a rejoinder, which clarified the issues.
He added that the newspaper on the Internet was also among those who came to immediately evaluate the projects of Chalawa, Sharada and Bombay N2.6 billion in Kano. Sources said DSS may be investigating how some documents leaked by Newsdiary Online were leaked.
Nmodu, a member of Nigeria’s most important policy research institution, the Nigerian Institute for Political and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), will be at the headquarters of the Department of Public Security on Thursday morning starting at 10:00 a.m.
