The Department of State Services has denied invading the premises of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
Media reports say the secret Police invaded the CBN headquarters in search of its boss, Godwin Emefiele after a failed attempt to arrest him at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport.
But the DSS described the reports as false and unverified by some media outlets.
A statement sent to NationWide by DSS Spokesman, Dr Peter Afunanya, described the reported invasion of the CBN by DSS operatives with a view to arresting Emefiele, as fake news.
Afunanya said, “The attention of the Department of State Services (DSS) has been drawn to the false news making the round that its operatives invaded the Central Bank of Nigeria and arrested its Governor, today 16/1/23.
“This is fake news and quite misleading,” the statement said.
