Just in: DSS speaks on alleged sponsoring of thugs to attack #EndSARS protesters in Abuja


Nigeria’s secret police, the Department of State Services (DSS) has reacted to a viral video that allegedly shows some of its personnel aiding and abetting thugs to attack #EndSARS protesters in Abuja.

In a statement signed by its spokesperson, Peter Afunaya, the DSS said so far, none of its personnel has been identified to be involved in such acts.

“It begs the question to conclude that SUVs and persons dressed in suits and sighted in conflict environments are of the DSS. Fact is that no staff of the DSS will engage in acts as the ones being peddled by these rumour mongers and hate speakers.

The Service is a responsible professional Organization and will endeavor to remain so at all times. It, therefore, wishes to state that the allegations leveled against it are not true and can only be taken as false narratives designed to cast it in bad image as well as inflame the protests.

Consequently, the public is enjoined to disregard the falsehood emanating from sections of the social and mainstream media, subversive groups and interests.

The Service uses this opportunity to call on citizens to eschew bitterness, remain law abiding and cooperate with security agencies and indeed, the Government for lasting peace and public safety.”
