The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied arresting Nnamdi Kanu, the Director of secessionist radio station, Radio Biafra.
Debunking the reports of Kanu’s arrest, two members of the DSS in Lagos who spoke to Happenings availed that although they were aware of the activities of Radio Biafra and the Independent people of Biafra (IPOB) movement, he had not been arrested.
Speaking via a telephone interview, one DSS officials said: “We don’t have anything like that here, we don’t. “If he was truly arrested and I didn’t hear about it, it would be a first.”
Another official said that the DSS has only arrested a few of the movement’s sympathisers.
He said: “We’ve arrested some of them and they’re currently being interrogated and tired in the courts, but I don’t think we have him (Kanu) in our custody yet.
“Don’t be surprised if this is a fake news, he is desperate for international reverence.”
When asked if the DSS was making moves to arrest Kanu, he said: “This is not a topic I’d like to discuss, sorry.”
Already, Radio Biafra has issued a statement stating that the reported arrest of its director is in line with its plot, claiming that President Muhammadu Buhari has fallen into its trap.
