DSS speaks on torturing Buhari’s driver to death

The Department of State Services (DSS) has insisted it did not torture President Muhammadu Buhari’s driver, Sai’du Afaka, to death

It described those reporting it as “misleading”.

Sahara Reporters had reported that Afaka misled Buhari into approving a multi-million naira contract which was later discovered by the DSS.

It further said the service arrested Afaka, tortured and subsequently dumped him at the State House Clinic where he died.

However, the DSS, in a statement said: “While the said driver was never arrested or detained by the Service, it is a known fact that it does not torture suspects. Its suspect handling method is usually in compliance with the tenets of criminal justice administration system and democracy.”
