Contrary to reports that Senator Dino Melaye was whisked away by masked men of the Department of State Security Services (DSS) from the Force Clinic in Garki, Abuja, the force said its men did not abduct the senator from the police hospital.
The DSS in a statement by its spokesman, Peter Afunanya said;
“The fact is that it was the Police that brought him to the DSS facility after obtaining a 14-day detention warrant with effect from 9th January, 2019. The aim of bringing him to the Service’s facility is to complement Police efforts in giving the Senator a deserved medical attention.”
“Consequently, the Service, in line with medical ethics and spirit of inter-agency cooperation, accepted him. This clarification has become necessary in order to address the false allegation that hooded men suspected to be DSS operatives abducted the Senator from the Police hospital”.
