The Department of State Services (DSS) said on Thursday, that Saidu Afaka, President Muhammadu Buhari’s official driver who reportedly died on Tuesday, April 6 at the State House Clinic, was never arrested, detained or tortured by the Service before his demise.

Dr. Peter Afunanya, spokesperson for the DSS, said in a statement in Abuja that reports in a section of the media that the department tortured the late Master Warrant Officer of the Nigerian Army to death was misleading.
