WE DIDN’T DISPERSE DOCTORS AT SAUDI ARABIA’S RECRUITMENT EXERCISE IN ABUJA – DSS

The Department of State Services (DSS) has said that it did not disperse doctors attending a recruitment exercise organised by a consultant for Saudi Arabia in Abuja as alleged by media outlets.

A recruitment exercise for doctors by Saudi Arabia was held in Lagos, another was held in Abuja on Thursday.

There are reports that operatives of the DSS stormed the Sheraton Hotels venue of the recruitment exercise, and dispersed the doctors and arrested journalists, but was later released.

But Peter Afunanya, Spokesman of the DSS, in a swift reaction on Friday debunked such rumours.

According to him: “The attention of the Department of State Services has once again been drawn to a falsehood being circulated in the media that it dispersed doctors attending a Saudi Arabia organised job interview at the Sheraton Hotel, Abuja, yesterday 26th August, 2021.

“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 cross check their facts and ensure that they do not use their platforms to mislead the public or undermine national security.”
