The Nigeria Department of State Services DSS has said none of its operatives were part of those that escaped from the recent jail break at the Kuje Medium Correctional Facility.
The Public Relations Officer of the Service Peter Afunanyan whobdtated this in a statement of Thursday said, ” The attention of the Department of State Services (DSS) has been drawn to an online Vanguard newspaper report of 6th July, 2022 captioned: Kuje Prison Attack: One Suspect Reportedly Caught After Hot Chase by Gallant Officers. The said report alleged that one of the escaping inmates who “claimed to be a DSS personnel was apprehended by NCS operatives near Kwali after a chase.” The report further stated that the so called DSS operative also claimed to be “carrying out a special mission in the forest”.
” The Service wishes to state that none of its personnel was involved in the escape episode. In fact, at the point of the attack on the prison, no DSS personnel was an inmate at the holding facility just as the claim of carrying out a special assignment was non-existent. The Vanguard report is not factual and therefore misleading. The public is advised to disregard it.”
It will be recalled that a gang suspected to be Boko Haram Terrorists attacked the Kuje correctional facility where it was gathered that several inmates and Some commanders of Boko Haram members were set free.
