The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied and described as misleading, the SaharaReporter’s report that Sa’idu Afaka, the President’s official driver, was tortured to death by its operatives.

The Spokesperson, Department of State Services, National Headquarters, Dr Peter Afunanya, in a statement released late Wednesday evening described the report as misleading.

He said: “The Department of State Services (DSS) denies the misleading news by Saharareporters that it tortured Sa’idu Afaka, the President’s official driver to death.

“It may be recalled that the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, had on 6th April 2021 announced the passing of Afaka after a prolonged illness as well as the condolences of the President to his family.

“The public should, therefore, disregard the fake news spewed by the online platform.”
