The Department of State Services (DSS) has said that its mandate is to investigate matters of national security, hence remaining sacrosanct to the call.

The service Public Relations Officer Peter Afunanya PhD. made this known in a statement on 19th December 2022 that It has never deviated from discharging its responsibility in the overall interest of Nigerian citizens, hence the Service will continue to disseminate actionable intelligence to the relevant authorities devoid of any sentiment.

He said “While professionally discharging its mandate, the DSS pledges to remain focused and unbiased. It will not, by any means, succumb to propaganda, intimidation, and the desperation of hirelings to undermine it. It will also not give room to the use of falsehood and deceit to misdirect public understanding and perceptions of issues of national importance.

“Given not to join issues, the Service warns those on a wild goose chase to be mindful of their actions. “Similarly, it urges members of the public to disregard the vituperations and rantings of misguided elements and not allow themselves to be used as instruments of destabilization.

“Notably, these elements should remember the famous axiom that “you will only deceive some people, some of the time, but not all people, all the time”. To put it succinctly, the Service will not be distracted by persons and/or groups from carrying out its duties to the Nation, citizens, President and Commander-in-Chief. “Citizens are, therefore, urged to avoid being used to thwart or undermine the Service and its lawful investigations as those who wish to act in breach will be dealt with by the law.” The statement ended.
