The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied tapping the telephone lines of Nigerians.
A political group had alleged that the DSS had tapped the telephone lines of Nigerians.
But Mr Peter Afunanya, the Public Relations Officer of the DSS, said in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja that the organisation was committed to its professional ideals and would not engage in unethical conduct.
He said the DSS had been criticised by unpatriotic citizens who fed the public with fake news and hate speeches against it.
The spokesman said that the social media had been awash with wrong information regarding the operations of the DSS that were misunderstood and misrepresented.
“It is obvious that some merchants of violence are determined to use their platforms to misinform the public for their selfish and political ends,” he said.
He warned mischief makers against misleading the public, adding that the law would catch up with them.
“The DSS is a responsible organisation and thus professionally adheres to the ideals of intelligence and security governance expected of it in a democracy,” he said
Afunanya urged the public to disregard the claims of the political group.
He said that the DSS should be left out of politics to maintain its usual transparency and neutrality in the discharge of its mandate.
