The CDHR president who expressed worry over the overzealousness of men of DSS and their less than average conduct as public officers called for appropriate sanctions to avoid future occurrence.     

“The repeated and clandestine approach where officers or men of the DSS mask themselves in official discharge of their duties is becoming very worrisome. Needless to say such operation targeted at a sister organisation can only lead to chaos, anarchy and disharmony in the entire law enforcement apparatus of the country.
