The Department of State Services (DSS) said the service did not detain or torture Mr Sa’id Afak before the death of President Muhammad Buhari’s late official driver.
Statement of dr. Peter Afunanye, a DSS public relations officer in Abuja on Thursday, says reports in some parts of the media that the department tortured the deceased driver to death with misleading information.
Afunanya said the driver was never arrested or detained in the ward.
According to him, the manner of dealing with the suspect is usually in accordance with the principles of the criminal justice and democracy system.
Therefore, the DSS spokesman called on the public to ignore the fake news in the trend on the network platform.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that senior special assistant to the President for Media and Promotion Malam Garba Shehu announced the death of Afaka on April 6.
Shehu said the deceased driver died after a long illness and expressed the president’s condolences to his family.
