The Department of State Services (DSS) has reacted to the viral news that its operatives arrested two sons of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Muhammad.
An online medium (not Naija News) had on Monday claimed two sons of the CJN, Sirajo and Sanni Tanko were arrested by DSS operatives to force their father to reverse the recent Supreme Court judgment on Bayelsa State.
The medium added that their phones were seized and all call logs, as well as messages, were searched, noting that one of the sons was still in DSS custody as of Monday morning.
It claimed their arrest was broken on Twitter by a former aide (name withheld) of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
However, the DSS spokesperson, Peter Afunanya, has denied the news that its operatives arrested two sons of the CJN.
“They were not arrested; we didn’t arrest the two sons of the CJN,” Afunanya said as quoted by Punch.
Naija News recalls that few days to his expected inauguration, the Supreme Court sacked the Bayelsa State APC candidate and governor-elect, Mr David Lyon and ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to issue Certificate of Return to Senator Diri Duoye of the Peoples Democratic Party.
He was sacked on the basis of an alleged fake result presented to INEC by his running mate, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo.
