The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied reports that it was part of a joint team that attempted to arrest popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho on Friday.
As previously reported by Naija News, Igboho was on his way to see Afenifere chieftain, Pa Ayo Adebanjo in Lagos on Friday when the joint team, numbering about 40 ambushed him and wanted to arrest him on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
But in a statement on Friday by its Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya, the DSS described the reports as fake news.
The statement reads: “The Department of State Services wishes to refute the news that it attempted to arrest one Sunday Igboho, today, at Ibadan, Oyo State.
“The said news is misinforming and should be taken as fake and therefore be disregarded.”
