Bubacarr A.M.O Badjie, legal adviser of the NIA is accused of breaking the country’s security secrets and code of conduct binding on all active and serving officers of this intelligence service.
Badjie exposed the high level of corruption at the country’s former National Intelligence Agency (NIA) -now State Intelligence Services- and the incompetence of its staff in the petition published in local press this weeek. He has accused the agency of having a 60 per cent workforce that is “functionally illiterate” and can neither read or understand the English Language.
“The usefulness of such people as NIA agents is very insignificant as most of them cannot write comprehensive English Language nor understand it,” Badjie wrote in a petition to the Office of the President.
The NIA has reacted with fury to Mr Badjie’s allegations which it described as ‘untrue’ and has allegedly issued an order for his arrest.
