We didn’t invade Kano Emir’s palace — DSS debunks viral claim

We didn’t invade Kano Emir’s palace — DSS debunks vira

The Department of State Service, DSS, has denied media reports alleging that it invaded the Emir of Kano’s palace, saying it is untrue.

Muhammad Alhassan, who is the state Director of the DSS said this when he spoke with newsmen in Kano on Thursday.

Alhassan said that the DSS only deployed its personnel to the palace as part of a security arrangement for the visit of the First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu, to the Emir.

He said, however, that the personnel were withdrawn, following the postponement of the visit due to the absence of the Emir in town.

He said that there was no iota of truth in the report alleging that DSS operatives stormed the Emir’s Palace in connection with the recent development at the State House of Assembly.

He urged Nigerians to disregard the false and malicious report, which he said was aimed at causing unnecessary tension and misinformation.

The State House of Assembly had on Thursday repealed the Kano Emirates Council Law, 2019, thereby dissolving the Emirates of Bichi, Gaya, Karaye and Rano.
