No money, weapon found in Daura’s house, says DSS


The Department of State Services has denied the rumours making the round that a huge sum of money and weapons were found in the house of its sacked Director General, Mr. Lawal Daura. The service said that the rumour emanated from some fake videos which it said were circulated as being the outcome of a search allegedly carried out in Daura’s house.

A statement issued by the spokesperson for the agency, Mr. Tony Opuiyo, in Abuja on Monday, said there was no iota of truth in the allegation that N21bn and an unspecified number of Permanent Voter Cards were found in Daura’s houses. The videos, which Opuiyo had described as fake, gave an impression that the search was conducted at the residence of the former DG in both Abuja and Daura, Katsina State.

The spokesman for the agency said that there was no search carried out in the home of Daura by any security agency. Opuiyo asked members of the public to exercise restraint in their narration of events and as such, to desist from spreading fake news or engaging in activities that he said might mislead or further cause a breach of the peace as well as preempt the outcome of investigations.
