Topic - State Security Service

State Security Service (SSS) is the primary federal government law enforcement agency of Nigeria. It is primarily responsible for internal policing, and is one of three successor organisations to the National Security Organization (NSO), dissolved in 1986. The SSS has come under repeated criticism from both within Nigeria and without charging it as an instrument of political repression, used by whatever government is then in power to harass and intimidate political opponents. SSS officials maintain they act constitutionally, providing needed internal peace and security for the people of Nigeria. - Source: Wikipedia
