BREAKING: DSS Denies Arresting Two Sons Of CJN, Tanko Muhammad

The Department of State Security Services, DSS, has denied arresting two sons of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Sirajo and Sanni Tanko.

An online medium, Observers Times, had reported on Monday, that the two persons had been arrested by Operatives of the DSS.

The medium claimed that their arrest was broken on Twitter, by a former Aide (name withheld) of former President, Goodluck Jonathan.

However the DSS Spokesperson, Peter Afunanya, said:  “They were not arrested; we did not arrest the two sons of the CJN.”

The report stated that the Aide of the former President confirmed that their phones were seized, and all call logs, as well as messages, were searched.

The report claimed one of the two sons had been released on bail, while one was still a guest of the DSS, as at Monday morning.

The report while quoting the former Aide, noted that their arrest was to arm-twist the CJN, to reverse the recent Supreme Court judgement on the Bayelsa State Governorship Election.

“It is part of the schemes to intimidate the Supreme Court, to revert the Bayelsa election in favour of the All Progressives Congress”, the report quoted the former Aide as saying.

Recall, that the Apex Court, earlier in the month, sacked the Bayelsa State APC Candidate and Governor-elect, Mr. David Lyon, and ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to issue a Certificate of Return to Senator Diri Duoye, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The Apex Court held that Lyon’s running mate for the election, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, submitted false information to INEC.
