DSS speaks on arresting INEC officials over Atiku ‘server results’
The Department of State Services (DSS) has debunked reports that it has arrested and detained seven staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
It was gathered that understands that there was a report on social media that the DSS had arrested some ICT staff of INEC for disclosing the commission’s server Identity number to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its Presidential candidate in the just concluded elections, Atiku Abubakar.
However, a statement by the DSS in Abuja over the weekend described the reports as false.
“The service wishes to state that the information in its entirety is false and should be seen as a calculated effort to smear its image,” the statement noted.
”It states categorically that none of such things happened as it never invited or arrested any INEC staff.
“There is no iota of truth in these allegations and the public is, therefore, enjoined to disregard them.
“They are simply manipulative, misleading, inciting and can only be considered as mischievous and unpatriotic.”
