He however served as Director of Intelligence at the Defence Intelligence Agency, DIA, before he was appointed Director of Air Intelligence.

Usman, while speaking when he took over from Davies at the DIA, said he was grateful to God and to President Buhari for the appointment and promised to work in harmony with the services to ensure peace and security for the nation.

“Eight months ago, I was posted from here (DIA), to the NAF headquarters. I never knew that I will come back this way. I have taken it as an act of God. My doors will be open to all and I will be fair to all and I will carry everybody along”, Usman told officers and men of the Agency.
