DSS denies aiding Nnamdi Kanu’s escape

The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied what it describes as a malicious report suggesting that five of its personnel allegedly aided Nnamdi Kanu, the self-acclaimed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to escape his abode in Umuahia, Abia State on September 14, 2017.

The spokesman of the Service, Peter Afunanya in a statement on Monday said, “The Service wishes to state that the news is fake, mischievous and defamatory.”

He added that, “It is nothing but a figment of the imagination of the originators.  The public should, by now, have noted the antics of Kanu, IPOB and their collaborators whose stock in trade is to peddle unfounded rumours, gossips and propaganda aimed at subverting the government, its key agencies and officials.”

He said the DSS is aware that some unscrupulous elements are keen on exploiting the situation to constitute a nuisance to the freedoms of all persons as guaranteed in the Constitution and as well disrupt the forthcoming general elections.

He added that the DSS will not idly standby and watch these undesirable elements achieve their aims.

He said, “It is to be further emphasized that the indissolubility, unity and indivisibility of our beloved country is sacred. Obstructive planners against the unity of Nigeria should, therefore, know that no individual or group can be bigger than this country.”
