DSS Uncovers Planned Campaign of Calumny Against Government

The Department of State Services (DSS) has identified persons and groups planning to stage campaigns of calumny against it and the Government over the suspension and investigation of Mr Godwin Emefiele.

Dr. Peter Afunanya Public Relations Officer Department of State Services, DSS National Headquarters, Abuja made this known in a statement, issued on Saturday.

He explained that the Service is, therefore, aware of a cheap propaganda aimed at demotivating and distracting it from professionally executing the onerous responsibilities assigned to it.

It has also noted the misleading commentaries, speculative narratives, storylines and videos being circulated in the social media by uninformed parties, critics and/or desperadoes.

“It is mindful of orchestrations to infiltrate its fold for the purpose of using disloyal staff for subversive aims against its leadership. While these efforts are considered as hatchet jobs designed to distract, the Service warns the plotters to desist forthwith from their plans.”

“This is more so that the arrow heads are already under watch and will be apprehended when and if it becomes necessary.”

It added that it is instructive to state that the Service had granted the family of Emefiele, medical officials and appropriate persons access to him, right from the day he was taken in and long before the court order requesting so.

He explained that the Service implements Standard Operating Procedures on Suspect Handling and Investigation to the latter. It conducts its affairs transparently, professionally and respects the rule of law in compliance with democratic governance.

He stressed that for the avoidance of doubt, the Service assured of its professionalism in the current matter(s) under its purview. It will, however, not be distracted or intimidated.
