Recall that the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, announced the death of Mr Afaka on Tuesday, April 6, saying the late driver died due to a prolonged illness.

The Public Relations Officer to the SSS, Peter Afunanya, who disclosed this on Thursday in Abuja, said that the reports in some sections of the media regarding the torture to death of the driver was misleading information.

According to him, the handling of suspects is usually in compliance with the tenets of the criminal justice administration system and democracy.
