Controversy has trailed the moment an official of the Department of State Services (DSS) attempted to stop Nigerian billionaire and popular businessman, Rasaq Okoya, from shaking President Bola Tinubu.

The incident took place on a Friday at the mosque located in Nnamdi Azikiwe Street, Lagos Island.

After the religious service, Okoya approached President Tinubu to exchange pleasantries. However, a DSS security agent attempted to intervene and halt the handshake. Despite the agent’s efforts, President Tinubu chose to proceed with the gesture, disregarding the attempt to prevent it.

The incident sparked a divided reaction among netizens, with some taking to social media to commend the DSS official for diligently executing his duty to protect the president. On the other hand, there were those who criticized the security agent, labeling his actions as overzealous.
