‘No Firearm was Recovered in A-Ibom Govt House by DSS Operatives’
Akwa Ibom State Government has again reiterated that no firearm or currency of any kind was recovered during the recent raid by some agents of the Directorate of State Services, DSS, on Government House, Uyo, as allegedly peddled by a section of the media.
A release issued yesterday in Uyo by the Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mr. Aniekan Umanah, recalled that Governor Udom Emmanuel had variously cleared the air on the matter stressing that nothing was found or taken away from Government House, Uyo.
‘’Let it be stated for the umpteenth time that no such thing was found or taken from our Government House,” the Commissioner declared.
Umanah, who described such allegations by some alleged agents of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the misinformed public as unfounded and spurious, noted that it was unfortunate that people were still peddling false rumours to the effect that security agents discovered firearms and foreign currencies in Akwa Ibom State Government House.
The commissioner advised members of the public to disregard concocted and self-serving stories by political jobbers whose stock in trade, he said, was spreading rumours to survive.
