THE Department of State Services (DSS) lost two of its personnel in a fatal car accident at Gidan Katari, along the Abuja-Kaduna Expressway on Friday.
The team, according to the release, signed by DSS Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya, Ph.D, was heading to one of the states in the North-West zone for an operation when the Hilux vehicle in which they were travelling somersaulted.
“Two (2) persons died in the accident while another was injured. He is presently receiving required attention in a medical facility,” Afunanya said.
The release noted that “This clarification has become necessary in order to debunk fake news making the round that the gallant officers were attacked by bandits. The public is enjoined to disregard any contrary information.”
