MEET FRANK OSHANUGOR

For the umpteenth time, the Department of State Services (DSS) has uncovered plans by some subversive groups and individuals to undertake a negative media campaign against the Service.
According to a statement by the Service spokesman, Dr. Peter Afunnanya on Tuesday, “The aim is to further use fake news, propaganda and malicious narratives through sponsored articles, among others, to undermine it.
He added that “the Service has steadily monitored these activities, their perpetrators and therefore wish to inform the public to disregard the emerging trends and patterns.”
The DSS has therefore warned those with such sinister motive intended to cause a breach of peace in the country to be mindful of their action as the Service would not shy
away from its responsibilities.
“The Service reassures its commitment to the discharge of its mandate. It will not be
distracted or silenced. Those engaged in the deliberate efforts to run it down are however, advised to desist from doing so or be ready to face the full wrath of the law,” the statement added.
