The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied claims that huge sums of money and weapons were recovered from the house of its sacked Director-General, Lawal Daura.
DSS Public Relations Officer, Mr Tony Opuiyo, who disclosed this in a statement said contrary to the reports, no security agency has carried out any search operation on Mr Daura’s house.
A viral video being circulated shows men allegedly from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and some agencies moving huge sums of money, sophisticated arms and light rifles as well as thousands of Permanent Voter Cards PVCs, purportedly recovered from the residence of the former DSS boss.
The DSS, has however dismissed the videos, saying they are not authentic. Opuiyo blamed the videos on the machination of some mischief-makers, bent on destabilising the nation, and therefore urged the public to disregard them.
A day after the sacking of the former DSS DG, the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, had written to the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, requesting among other things, the approval to search Mr Daura’s house.
