DSS didn’t remove files from ICPC, CCB offices — Spokesman

THE DSS has stated that its agents did not raid the offices of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) or the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

The secret police also stated that no files were hauled away from the two government organizations, as some sections of the media (Not Naijatimes) claimed.

In a statement issued today DSS spokesman Peter Afunanya also denied that the Service spied on judges on the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.

According to the DSS, the allegations have no factual basis or reliability and are figments of the creators’ minds.

“To set the records straight, the DSS did not execute operations of any kind at the ICPC and CCB or remove files from their offices,” the statement partly read.

“Instructively, the two agencies have, on their own, refuted the news in widely circulated press statements.”

The secret police further described as “laughable”, reports that former Governor of Zamfara State, Abdul’aziz Yari was invited by the DSS for refusing to pick President Bola Tinubu’s phone call. “Yari knows why he was invited,” the Service stated.

“The Service will remain focused, resilient, patriotic and professional in the conduct of its affairs. Members of the public are enjoined to disregard the misleading stories which are aimed at causing disaffection in the country and disparaging the Service’ leadership.”
