The Department of State Services (DSS) recently came out to say it has no official twitter handle and Nigerians should ignore any twitter message linked to them.
The Public Relations Officer of the service, Dr Peter Afunanya, revealed this in a statement in Abuja.
Dr Peter said the service had to speak out so Nigerians can be aware. He added that anyone caught in the act of deceiving the public will be dealt with.
His words, “The Service, therefore, disowns the ones, notably DSS 255 and DSS_NG_, currently in circulation.
“These twitter handles which also bear the Service’s symbols are not only fake but designed by their creators to deceive, misinform and defraud unsuspecting persons.
“It is also believed that such handles were desperately created by subversive elements to spread fake news and falsehood.”
