The Department of State Services, DSS, has denied the report that its personnel dispersed hundreds of Nigerian doctors attending a job interview organised by the Saudi Arabian government at the Sheraton Hotel, Abuja.
Some media houses had reported that the doctors were dispersed by men of the DSS on Thursday.
A statement by the agency’s Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya, on Friday, said the report was false.
“Though this is illogical and does not add up, sections of the media that reported it did not care to verify the news before going to print.
“No further evidence was also adduced to prove that the DSS carried out such operation at the hotel.
“It is obvious that the news is only designed to embarrass the Organisation. Journalists and other media practitioners are enjoined to crosscheck their facts and ensure that they do not use their platforms to mislead the public or undermine national security,” it read.
