The Department of State Services has debunked a falsehood being circulated in the media that it dispersed doctors attending a Saudi Arabia organised job interview at the Sheraton Hotel, Abuja, yesterday 26th August, 2021.
In a press release on Friday 27th August, 2021 signed by the Public Relations Officer Department of State Services, Peter Afunanya, Ph.D, he said that though this is illogical and does not add up, sections of the media that reported it did not care to verify the news before going to print.
“No further evidence was also adduced to prove that the DSS carried out such operation at the hotel. It is obvious that the news is only designed to embarrass the Organisation, Afunanya said.
He advised Journalists and other media practitioners to crosscheck their facts and ensure that they do not use their platforms to mislead the public or undermine national security.
