The Civil Service Department denied the death of the torture of Sai’d Afaka, the president’s official driver
He described an online news report by Saharareporters that he tortured the deceased as deceptive.
The newsroom reported that Afaka had seduced the president, Major General Muhammad Buhari (withdrawn), to approve a multi-million naira deal, which was later revealed by the DSS.
It is further alleged that the service arrested Afak, tortured him and then threw him at the State House Clinic where he died.
But a DSS spokesman, Dr. Peter Afunanya, in a statement Wednesday night, titled, “The President’s Official Driver Not Arrested or Tortured by the DSS,” said the secret police did not deal with the torture of suspects and asked the public to “ignore the false word of news thrown by the online platform.”
It states: “Although the service of the mentioned driver was never arrested or detained, it is a known fact that he does not torture the suspects. The method of dealing with a suspect is usually in line with the principles of the criminal justice and democracy system. ”
Senior Special Assistant to the President for Media and Promotion, Mallam Garba Shehu, announced on Tuesday that Afaka had died “after a long illness”.
He also expressed the president’s condolences to his family.
