The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied that its officials tortured Sa’idu Afaka, the  President’s official driver to death.
 
An online platform had reported that Afaka, was tortured to death by DSS and the news  went viral but in a Statement,  Public Relations Officer 
Department of State Services, National Headquarters, Abuja, Dr. Peter Afunanya, dismissed the claim by an online medium that DSS Officials tortured Sa’idu Afaka, the  President’s official driver to death.  The spokesman described the report as misleading. 
 
“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”.
