The Department of State Services (DSS) on Monday said it did not own, use or operate any official twitter handles and therefore, urged Nigerians to disregard twitter messages linked to the service.
The Public Relations Officer of the service, Dr Peter Afunanya, disclosed this in a statement in Abuja.
It’s very shameful that in this modern day technology; we still have some MDAs that still don’t have Twitter handle, Youtube or Facebook.
The same DSS shutdown National Assembly and prevent them from sitting which led to the Sack of former DSS BOSS, DAURA.
The same DSS went to the stadium about 50 days ago and use teargas to DISPERSE PEACEFUL protests at National STADIUM Surulere.
“These twitter handles which also bear the Service’s symbols are not only fake but designed by their creators to deceive, misinform and defraud unsuspecting persons.
“It is also believed that such handles were desperately created by subversive elements to spread fake news and falsehood,” he said.
Afunanya, therefore, urged the public to disregard the twitter handles and any message(s) emanating from them.
He, however, added that a detailed investigation had begun to ensure that the suspects were apprehended and prosecuted.
