Rivers Election: DSS speaks on ‘instruction to disrupt electoral process’



The Department of State Services (DSS) in Port Harcourt on Friday said it was not under instructions to work against the electoral process in the Rivers State governorship election.

DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya said this in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja.

He added, “The Service hereby categorically states that it has never received such instructions from any quarters.

“As a professional agency, it will continue to adhere to the principles of justice and fairness.

“This is in line with Mr. President’s stance on non interference in the electoral process.
