DSS invites Fani-Kayode in response to the “coup” report
The Department of State Services, DSS, has invited a spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential campaign council, Femi Fani-Kayode over allegations of a coup plot ahead of the February election.
Fani-Kayode confirmed the invitation by the DSS in a statement on Monday, stating that he would be honouring the invitation this morning, Monday.
The statement reads partly, “3 days ago, on the day that I tweeted about newspaper reports alleging that Atiku was secretly meeting with Army Generals, I got a text message from someone who claimed to be DSS asking me to report to them on a matter of national security.
“Because the invitation was ambiguous and I wasn’t confident that it actually came from the DSS, I rejected it. In any case, I had no plans to travel unless I received an official invitation. To my astonishment, they sent me a formal letter instructing me to visit their office as soon as possible two days from then, which was yesterday evening.
“I called them and was told to take the situation seriously and to show up on the designated day and time otherwise the worst could happen.
I don’t shudder and tremble when I’m invited by the security agencies, unlike cowards like Emefiele, Atiku, and his weird bedfellows. When properly invited, I always accept their invites because it is the right and proper thing to do.
“This is especially true when it involves issues of national security, which I take extremely seriously, and when it involves organizations like the DSS, which are diligent and professional in their approach and techniques.
Consequently, I will appear before the DSS this morning as requested because I have nothing to conceal.
No matter what happens to me today or at any other moment, know that as long as there is life in me, I will reject the darkness and evil that they represent. I maintain my absolute contempt for Atiku and the vermin that are around him.
He claimed that the gathering might be part of a plot to overthrow the government and install an undemocratic regime.
The Defence Headquarters in response reiterated the devotion of the armed forces to the constitution and civilian authority and rejected any plans to disrupt the general elections.
