Nigeria’s intelligence agency, the Department of State Services (DSS) has reacted to the alleged killing of a policeman, Rauf Fawale in Osun State.

Naija News reports that three DSS officials reportedly attacked Corporate Fawale around Oke Fia which led to the head injury sustained by the victim. The officer was alleged to have died at a private hospital in Osogbo.

The Osun State Police Command had said an operative of the DSS, David Olowoporoku, and two others were perpetrators of the alleged attack on the cop.

The state Commissioner of Police, Wale Olokode, had asked the DSS, Osun Command, to produce the officers allegedly involved in the police officer’s killing.

But in a statement on Wednesday by its spokesperson, Peter Afunanya, the DSS said it has begun a probe into the alleged killing of the policeman.

Afunanya noted that the agency would not condone any acts of indiscipline by any of its operatives.

Part of the statement read: “The attention of the Department of State Services (DSS) has been drawn to the incident that led to the death of a Police Corporal in Osun State. Consequently, the Service and the Police are jointly investigating the matter.

“The public should rest assured that it will not condone any acts of indiscipline or injustice. It, therefore, calls on the media and other stakeholders to exercise patience and await the outcome of the investigations.”
