The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied reports that it tortured and detained Sa’idu Afaka,  President Muhammadu Buhari’s official driver to death.

The service, in a statement on Wednesday signed by it’s spokesperson, Peter Afunnaya , maintained that it does not torture suspects.

It recalled that the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity,  Garba Shehu, had on 6th April, 2021 announced the passing of Afaka after a prolonged illness.

The statement reads

“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. While the said driver was never arrested or  detained by the Service, it is a known fact that it does not torture suspects.  Its suspect handling method is usually in compliance with the tenets of criminal justice administration system and democracy.

“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.”
