Yusuf Bichi, the Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS) has claimed that Nigerian politicians trust spiritualists and native doctors otherwise known as Babalawos for protection than security officials.

Bichi said this Monday 29th April, when he spoke at the retreat for incoming governors organised by the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) that held in Abuja.

“I joke with politicians that you people trust the marabouts and babalawos more. Once someone tells you nothing will happen to your seat and it happens, you just trust that person in all crisis.” he said

He said there was no lack of Intelligence in the country but rather a lack of will to combat the security challenges.

Bichi further said, some of the security challenges in Nigeria is as a result of many politicians’ distrust of security officials and relying on witch doctors.
