Peter Afunanya, the DSS spokesman said in a statement on Friday night denied that Dino Melaye was abducted from the police hospital.
He said: “The fact is that it was the Police that brought him to the DSS facility after obtaining a 14-day detention warrant with effect from 9th January, 2019. The aim of bringing him to the Service’s facility is to complement Police efforts in giving the Senator a deserved medical attention.
“Consequently, the Service, in line with medical ethics and spirit of inter-agency cooperation, accepted him. This clarification has become necessary in order to address the false allegation that hooded men suspected to be DSS operatives abducted the Senator from the Police hospital.
OkayNG News reported that Dino Melaye was arrested after he was hiding in his house for eight days.
