Ekiti State Lawmaker is not dead, he is hale and hearty - DSS

Earlier today the Ekiti State Government had announced the death of Mr Afolabi in the DSS custody after he was unlawfully detained along with three other lawmakers by the DSS operatives during their raid at Ekiti assembly complex last week. DSS refutes that and have presented the Ekiti State lawmaker to  journalists, saying he is hale and hearty. Read their statement below:

Press release by the DSS reads in part: 
“This Press Conference has become necessary in order to debunk a rumour which is being dangerously spread in Ekiti State by some mischief makers to the effect that Hon. Afolabi has died in custody. Nigerians and Ekiti people in particular are convinced to see that Afolabi is hale and hearty as he is being presented to the press today. 

The DSS will therefore warn all those who have planned to make a meat out of this to desist from it and stir clear from trouble as the Service will not hesitate to bring the full weight of the law against any one or persons that may engage in violent actions of any kind. In a similar vein, all law abiding Ekiti residents should go about their normal businesses as the Service assures them of full protection by security agencies.”
