The Department of State Services has denied detaining or torturing the late official driver to President Muhammadu Buhari, Sa’idu Afaka, before his death.

A statement by DSS Public Relations Officer, Dr. Peter Afunanya, on Thursday in Abuja, said reports in some section of the media that the Department tortured the late driver to death were misleading.

Afunanya said the late Afaka was never arrested nor detained by the service.

He said DSS suspect handling method is usually in compliance with the tenets of criminal justice administration system and democracy.

The DSS spokesman, therefore, urged the public to disregard the fake news trending on online platforms.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, on April 6 announced the death of Afaka.

Shehu said the late driver died after a prolonged illness and extended the condolences of the president to his family.
