Nigeria: Emefiele: Over the course of the investigation, the DSS uncovered a planned slander campaign against FG
By Ahmad Hadizat Omayoza, Mamos Nigeria
In relation to the ongoing investigation into Mr. Godwin Emefiele, the suspended governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), the Department of State Services (DSS) has made it clear that it has identified individuals and groups that are planning to stage campaigns of slander against both the Federal Government and the DSS.
Dr. Peter Afunanya, the secret police’s spokesman, stated that such groups intend to gather in Abuja and Lagos over the next week with placards praising the government and the Service and requesting Emefiele’s immediate release.
The sentence was as follows: As a result, the Service is aware of low-cost propaganda designed to discourage it from professionally carrying out the challenging tasks that have been assigned to it and to keep it from doing so.
“It has also noted the erroneous comments, speculative narratives, storylines, and videos that critics, desperadoes, and/or uninformed parties are posting on social media.
“It is aware of plots to break into its ranks and use disgruntled employees for subversive purposes against its leadership. The Service warns the plotters to immediately abandon their plans, even though these efforts are regarded as distractions.
This is especially true given that the arrow heads are already under surveillance and will be apprehended if necessary.
“It is instructive to state that the Service granted Emefiele’s family, medical personnel, and other appropriate individuals access to him from the day he was taken in, long before the court order requesting it.
“To the latter, the Service applies Standards Operating Procedures for Suspect Handling and Investigation. In accordance with democratic governance, it conducts its business in a transparent and professional manner.
“It assures of its professionalism in the current matter(s) under its purview for the avoidance of doubt.” However, it will not be intimidated or distracted.
