Kassim Afegbua, the spokesman of former Nigerian Presdient, Ibrahim Babangida, who was earlier invited by the Department of State Security Service (DSS), on Thursday, honoured the invite, but was unable to be attended to for questioning as the agency’s director-general was away from the office.
While speaking to PREMIUM TIMES by telephone Thursday night, Afegbua said: “We were asked to come again tomorrow morning. We were waiting there until 6:00 p.m. when we were asked to go.”
Speaking further, he said that was not informed about the specifics of the invitation, saying the DSS operatives merely told him and his lawyers that the invitation was for “a friendly chat.”
Afegbua said he would return to the SSS with his lawyer this (Friday) morning before 11:00 a.m. as directed by operatives they met during their visit today.
It was not immediately clear when Daura travelled out of Abuja or whether he summoned Afegbua even when he knew he won’t be in town to attend to him or delegate personnel for the session.
The DSS does not have a spokesperson that could be reached for comments.
