DSS denies assassinating Chike Akunyili

The Department of State Services (DSS) has condemned claims that its agents assassinated Dr. Chike Akunyili.

The agency, in a statement Wednesday night, reacted to a social media video claiming it carried out the act.

Peter Afunanya, the Public Relations Officer described the allegations as spurious and illogical.

The spokesman said there was no basis for the elimination of Akunyili and fellow law enforcement agents.

Afunanya stressed that the DSS cherishes life and believes in the rule of law.

“The public should, therefore, be wary of the false narratives by those desirous of using it (the Service) to cover up their heinous acts.

“The operations of these hostile elements are already well known in the public space and to the discerning.

“Their desperate effort to divert attention or deploy reverse psychology to deceive unsuspecting members of the public has become a stock in trade that has defined their patterns and trends.”

Afunanya added that it is a matter of time before the law will catch up with the perpetrators.

The DSS assured it is working with other agencies to track down those behind the breakdown of law and order and bring them to justice.
