The Department of State Services, DSS, Monday, said the alleged recovery of some items from the Abuja and Katsina homes of its immediate past Director-General, Lawal Daura as shown in some video is fake. The items now said to be non-existent include: Twenty-one billion naira (N21bn) cash, 400 assorted and sophisticated small arms and light weapons /rifles, and thousands of permanent voters Card (PVC) belonging to Niger Republic immigrants.
Spokesman of DSS, Tony Opuiyo said this in a statement in Abuja. In the statement, Opuiyo stated, “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.
“There is no doubt that different interests have continued to give varied accounts of the incident of last week at the National Assembly. “It may, however, be recalled that the Presidency had pledged to carry out a detailed investigation regarding the alleged National Assembly siege.
“The public is, therefore, advised to exercise restraint in their narration of events and as such, desist from spreading fake news or engaging in activities that may mislead or further cause a breach of the peace as well as preempt the outcome of investigations”.
