The Department of State Service (DSS) in Edo, has denied invading the residence or arresting anyone associated with Taiwo Akerele, former chief staff to governor Godwin Obaseki.
Sheikh Waziri, DSS Director in Edo, said in Benin, the state capital, on Monday, that no operative of the service invaded the residence of Akerele on Sunday, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
There were reports in Benin, that the operatives have arrested one Jaspa Olowojoba, personal assistant to Akerele, when they could not find the former CoS.
“I have verified and confirmed that the DSS Edo has not invaded the residence nor arrested anyone associated with the former CoS,” Waziri said.
Akerele, on Saturday, resigned his appointment in a controversial circumstance.
Obaseki has since replaced him with Osaze Uzamure.
