Abuja—Department of State Services, DSS, has described as false and wicked, fake news being widely circulation in the social media claiming that N21 billion, 400 assorted weapons and permanent voter cards, PVCs, were recovered from the homes of its sacked Director-General, Lawal Daura.
Opuiyo described the video as the handiwork of dishonest elements bent on creating tension and breach of the peace in the country and tarnishing the image of the DSS.
The agency said: “These non-existent items include N21 billion cash; 400 assorted and sophisticated small arms and light weapons/rifles; and thousands of Permanent Voters Cards, PVCs, belonging to Niger Republic immigrants.
“In another video also in circulation, some persons believed to be personnel of a security outfit were seen forcing open safes stocked with money. The security operatives were described as executing a recovery operation at the Katsina home of the former D-G.
“Consequently, the service wishes to inform the public that these videos are false and should be disregarded. So far, no such recovery operations have been undertaken by the EFCC or any other security agency at DSS’ office or residences of the former DG.”
