The Department of State Services has denied that its operatives abducted Sen. Dino Melaye as alleged in some media. A statement by the Public Relations Officer of the service, Mr Peter Afunanya, said that the police brought Dino to its medical facility. “The fact is that it was the Police that brought him to the DSS facility after obtaining a 14-day detention warrant with effect from Jan.9. “The aim of bringing him to the Service’s facility is to complement Police efforts in giving the Senator a deserved medical attention,” he said. Also, Force Spokesman, acting DCP Jimoh Moshood had earlier explained in a statement that Dino was moved to the DSS facility in Abuja, for further medical attention.
