The Lagos State Police Command and the Department of State Services has denied reports making rounds online that they invited some entertainers for questioning.
This comes after some media outlets reported earlier today that Don Jazzy, Waje, Yemi Alade, others were invited to the DSS office in Lagos state as well as the state police command where they were allegedly warned to be mindful of the kind of posts they make on social media — some which are seen to be against the Buhari-led government.
According to the report, they were later summoned by Zubairu Muazu who is said to be the Lagos State Commissioner of Police.
Speaking with DSS spokesman, Peter Afunnaya, in an interview with Punch, he denied the report saying no musician have been invited by them.
The spokesperson of the state police command, Bala Elkana, also denied claims the command invited Yemi Alade and Waje. Elkana said that Zubairu Muazu, who was said to have invited the singers, “ceased being CP more than 10 months ago.”
“The present CP is Hakeem Odumosu, who came in November last year. Zubairu Muazu has even retired from service; he retired as an AIG.”
When asked to confirm if the celebrities were invited by the Lagos State Police Command, Elkana said, “I’m not aware of any invitation.”
