The scuffle between officials of the Department of State Services, DSS, and Nigerian Prisons Services at the premises of the High Court is being probed by the security agency, its spokesman, Dr. Peter Afunanya, said yesterday.

Afunanya said the DSS did not authorise the operation, given its respect for the judiciary, describing the incident as unfortunate.

Afunanya, who said in a statement that what transpired does not reflect the professional disposition of the agency, noted: “The Service did not and would never encourage the incident under reference; the Service has tremendous respect for the judiciary as an arm and institution of government and will not go out of its way to undermine it.

“The DSS recognises the judiciary as a critical component in nation-building, national development and security management.
