EMEFILE’S ARREST DSS UNCOVERS PLOT TO BLACKMAIL GOVERNMENT

The Department of State Services, DSS, says it has identified persons and groups planning to stage campaigns of calumny against it and the government over the suspension and investigation of Godwin Emefiele. In a press statement, spokesperson for the Service, Peter Afunanya, stated that such groups intend to gather at different points in Abuja and Lagos in the coming week with placards depicting the Service and government in bad light as well as calling for the immediate release of the suspended apex bank chief. The DSS noted that is is aware of a cheap propaganda aimed at demotivating and distracting it from professionally executing the onerous responsibilities assigned to it.

Afunaya said the DSS has also observed the misleading commentaries, speculative narratives, storylines and videos being circulated on social media by uninformed parties, critics and some desperate entities. He added that the security outfit is mindful of orchestrations to infiltrate its fold for the purpose of using disloyal staff for subversive aims against its leadership. While these efforts, according to him, are considered as hatchet jobs designed to distract, the Service has warned the plotters to desist forthwith from their plans.

The image maker of the agency said it is instructive to note that the it had granted the family of Emefiele, medical officials and appropriate persons access to him, beginning from the day he was taken in and long before the court order requesting so.

Peter Afunaya assured of his organisation’s professionalism in the current matter under its purview, stating that it will, however, not be distracted or intimidated.
