Contact details of the SSS personnel released online

News agency, AP is reporting that personal records, which includes names and home addresses of family members of employees of Nigeria's State Security Service have leaked on the internet.

Personal information of more than 50 past and current SSS employees, including that of the agency's DG - his mobile phone number, and bank account particulars, were posted in the comment section of a website.

AP wrote that the information was leaked along with a threatening message that claimed to come from Boko Haram. .


"This is a national embarrassment," said one intelligence official, who spoke on condition of anonymity as information about the leak was not to have been made public.

Marilyn Ogar, a spokeswoman for the SSS, did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Thursday about the leak.

Though the comments have been removed from the website, cached versions of the comments remain online and intelligence service agents have been killed by Boko Haram members in the past.

The list includes former and current agents across the country, including Director-General Ekpeyong Ita. Those reached by the AP who were willing to talk expressed disbelief that sensitive information like that could make its way to the Internet.

"I was shocked to see my details posted on the Internet," said one former agent, who declined to be named out of safety concerns. "I've not heard anything from anybody. I was surprised that such information could be leaked."

Lmao.."A national embarrassment" is an understatement.

It has happened here in the good ol mighty USA so anything saved on any online anything can get to the wrong hands. With that said, I think the best they can do is what they did. Those BH SEF. I thot they hated western education. So they have some graduates amongst them sponsoring and supporting. God will reveal you all soon

Now you know why there is a lot of sabotage involved in the fight and no progress in curbing the problem

Too many Judases in their midst.

Second question is why didn't AP pull the comment? that is why such leaks thrive. the right investigators can even trace who did the upload etc and plug that hole

Abegi make I hear word. These things are not unheard of. They happen anywhere. Una too de do like say na only Nigeria wrong things de happen. When Osama Bin Laden was killed, the SEAL team that terminated him was suppossed to remain unknown. But within 30 days Al-qaeda got their identities, including the NATO base they operated from. All 30 of them were killed by Al-qaeda with a single rocket propelled grenade fired against their Chinook chopper when they were taking off from that NATO base. That is the so called 'world super power' america. It is also in our presence that wikileaks released millions of uncensored intelligence secretes of almost all countries in the world including your so called 'western powers'. You people are pulling the roof over just 50 SSS names and phone numbers, which could have been released by any aggrieved SSS staff that probably was not paid his gratuity on time or may be was unceremoniously trasfered from a post. Please you guys should support our troops for once. They have been able to tackle boko haram to a stand still in a manner that America/NATO could not do to the Taliban for 11 years, Somalia could not do to Al-shabab for 20 years, Mali could not do to the Tuaregs as we can see today, and so much more around the world. A british soldier currently serving in Afghanistan who is a friend of mine recently said that Nigeria has the best infantry corps in the world, above any other. They know these things.

it only means there is a leak in the SSS....which also means they are weak

Wait, I thought Boko Haram was against Western education and all things that have to do with it. So how come they're this technologically savvy? They should just come out and ask for money like we know they want. Bloody cowards.

God will bless u real good for the analysis...it can happen to any developed country and u gave a very good example of that US navy seal.. We nid to kip encouragin our own instead of castigating dem. Even though they are not perfect, These people sacrificed there lives and happiness for you to sleep with both eyes closed...they deserved your commendation... So to hell with the rogue agent who exposed their names. God bless ma country, God bless Nigerian Army, Police and SSS and Godbless the good people of Naija...

Very good analysis Saduwa, but pls get ur facts straight. Out of the 30 people that died in that crash, only 17 were Navy Seals, and out of the 17, only 15 were from d same Unit that killed Osama. They were not involved in d combat op that killed him. They were just from d same unit - Stynoski

The F.G knows what to do but they will never put the right people at the right places. There are many qualified young graduates that can help secure the information systems but yet Government would not employ them.
