The Department of State Services (DSS) has debunked online reports that two sons of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Sirajo and Sanni Tanko were arrested by officials of the agency.
Recall that reports of the arrest went viral on Monday, February 24th that the two sons of the CJN, Muhammad Tanko were arrested in connection with a fraud related case.
According to the report, the arrest was to force CJN to reverse the recent Supreme Court judgement overturning the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State.
Reacting to the development, the spokesperson of the secret police agency, Peter Afunanya told reporters that there is no truth to the report.
“They were not arrested; we didn’t arrest the two sons of the CJN.” he said
