The Department of State Security Services has dismissed claims that Hon. Akanni Afolabi, a member of Ekiti State House Assemply died in its custody.
This was in reaction to claims by the Ekiti State Government that Hon Afolabi who has was arrested last week is dead. Spokesperson for the Service, Tony Opuyo dismissed the claims in a statement read out to journalists on Thursday, March17, in Abuja. The lawmaker was also paraded.
“This press conference has become necessary in order to debunk a rumour which is being dangerously spread in Ekiti State by some mischief makers to the effect that Hon. Afolabi has died in custody. Nigerians and Ekiti people in particular are convinced to see that Afolabi is hale and hearty as he is being presented to the press today,” said Opuiyo.
