The Department of State Service (DSS) has said it admitted Senator Dino Melaye at it’s Abuja Clinic as part of inter-agency collaboration with the police.
A statement late Friday night by DSS spokesman Peter Afunanya said the Police brought Melaye to the DSS facility after obtaining a 14-day detention warrant with effect from 9th January, 2019.
He said, “The aim of bringing him to the Service’s facility is to complement Police efforts in giving the Senator a deserved medical attention.”
He added that, ” the Service, in line with medical ethics and spirit of inter-agency cooperation, accepted him.”
He said this clarification has become necessary in order to address the false allegation that hooded men suspected to be DSS operatives abducted the Senator from the Police hospital.
He said the DSS, assures the public of its commitment to professionalism and respect for human rights in its operational engagements.
