The Department of State Services (DSS), said there is no iota of truth that its personnel force suspects to confess.
The service in a statement issued yesterday by its PRO, Peter Afunanya, said the DSS does not force out confessions from suspects and has not done so in the matter of IPOB and ESN.
The PRO said reports to the contrary were false and fictitious.
“The Service is a professional agency that follows the rules of engagement and standards operating procedures in all of its activities. It does not take laws into its hands. It is a public knowledge that it has by, today, charged many suspects to court in line with democratic norms.
“The entire reportage is a figment of the imagination of the news medium. Its aim is to simply malign the Service and bring it to disrepute. By now, everyone should have been aware of the brand of guerilla journalism practised by this particular outfit. The public should ignore the report wholly”.
