The Department of State Services (DSS) has debunked a story published by an online medium alleging that operatives of the service tortured to death the President’s official driver, Sa’idu Afaka.

The DSS Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya, in a press statement, late on Wednesday, said: “The DSS denies the misleading news by Sahara Reporters that it tortured Sa’idu Afaka, the  President’s official driver to death. While the said driver was never arrested or  detained by the Service, it is a known fact that it does not torture suspects.

 
“It’s suspect handling method is usually in compliance with the tenets of criminal justice administration system and democracy. 

 “It may be recalled that the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, had on 6th April, 2021 announced the passing of Afaka after a prolonged illness as well as the condolences of the President to his family.
“The public should, therefore, disregard the fake news spewed by the online platform.”
