The Department of State Services (DSS) has responded to online reports that the service has withdrawn its personnel attached to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and the Speaker House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara. They denied the report.

There were online reports that the security agency had withdrawn its personnel attached to the leaders of the National Assembly.

However, reacting to the report, the spokesperson of the service, Nnanna Nnochiri, said that the service never issued such directive.

“I can tell you authoritatively that the service never gave such directive. For emphasis, we have not withdrawn,  neither are we planning to withdraw our personnel in the security details of the two presiding officers of the National Assembly. There is no iota of truth in that report,” he told DailySun
