The Department of State Security Services, DSS has reacted to reports that detainees in its custody are being ‘forced’ to confess.


The security agency said the report was false in a statement signed by its PRO, Dr. Peter Afunanya(Phd.), stressing that the agency is competent and professional hence they do not take laws into their own hands.

The statement read: “There is no iota of truth in the so called exclusive. The DSS does not force out confessions from suspects and has not done so in the matter of IPOB and ESN.”

“The Service is a professional agency that follows the rules of engagement and standards operating procedures in all of its activities. It does not take laws into its hands. It is a public knowledge that it has by, today, charged many suspects to court in line with democratic norms.”

“The entire reportage is a figment of the imagination of the news medium. Its aim is to simply malign the Service and bring it to disrepute.”

“By now, everyone should have been aware of the brand of guerilla journalism practised by this particular outfit. The public should ignore the report wholly.”
