The Department of State Services, DSS, has denied involvement in the alleged abduction of Comrade Peter Timothy Igbifa, President of Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), by suspected masked men.
Reports earlier claimed that masked men suspected to be DSS whisked Igbifa away.
But the spokesperson of DSS, Dr Peter Afunanya debunked the report as untrue, according to report in PRNigeria.
“The DSS has nothing to do with the alleged arrest or whisking away of President of Ijaw Youth Council, Comrade Peter Timothy Igbifa by suspected masked men,” he said.
Meanwhile, some reports claimed that Masked men suspected to be operatives of the Department of State Services(DSS) on Tuesday allegedly whisked away Comrade Igbifa.
Igbifa was billed to lead a protest in Abuja following the expiration of a one-week ultimatum his group issued to the FG to reconstitute the board of the Niger Delta Development Commission(NDDC).
Igbifa had earlier issued advisory to all staff of multinational oil companies in the Niger Delta to vacate the region until the board of NDDC is inaugurated.
