Operatives of the Department of State Services, DSS, whoÂ earlierÂ on FridayÂ picked up the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Power, Steel Development and Metallurgy, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, are in his Apo residence in Abuja.
The DSS operatives who came in a Hilux busÂ with Abaribe were seen conducting a search on the building.
SourcesÂ said the security operatives who came with a search warrant claimed they were looking for materials associated with the outlawed Independent PeopleÂ of Biafra, IPOB.
Abaribe who represents Abia South in the Senate was earlier in the day picked up by DSS operativesÂ at Nicon Hilton in Abuja where he had gone for an hair cut.
As at press time, the security agents were still holed up at the Senator’s residence with no formal information from the DSSÂ as to why the Senator was picked up.
