The Department of State Services (DSS) has issued a strong warning to those using fake news, propaganda and malicious narratives to undermine the service, advising them to desist from doing so or be ready to face the full wrath of the law.
This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen by the Spokesman of the Service, Dr Peter Afunanya Tuesday night.
The statement reads, “The attention of the Department of State Services (DSS) has been drawn to plans by some subversive groups and individuals to undertake a negative media campaign against the Service.
“The aim is to further use fake news, propaganda and malicious narratives through sponsored articles, among others, to undermine it. The service has steadily monitored these activities, their perpetrators and therefore wishes to inform the public to disregard the emerging trends and patterns.
“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.”
