We have not cleared Dokpesi – SSS

The State Security Service, SSS, has said that media reports that the Chairman of Daar Communications and Director-General of the Ibrahim Babangida Campaign Organisation, Chief Raymond Dokpesi have been cleared after investigations were false.

A statement by the organisation’s spokesperson, Mrs. Marilyn Ogar in Abuja, Wednesday said investigations of the Abuja bomb blast were still on-going and as such it was wrong of anyone to say that Chief Dokpesi has been exonerated.

Below is the full statement:

“The attention of the Service has been drawn to the misrepresentation of its recent Press Briefing by segments of the media.


“We wish to categorically state that the Chairman of Daar Communications, Raymond DOKPESI (Chief) was arrested in connection to information disclosed about him by the suspects in custody.


“The fact of his subsequent release does not in any form amount to his exoneration since investigations are still ongoing.


“The Service restates its call on everyone to avoid the politicization of an issue of serious public safety”.
