The Akwa Ibom Government has stated once again that no firearm nor currency of any kind was found during the recent raid of Government House, Uyo by agents of the Department of State Security (DSS).
The Akwa Ibom government denied the allegations as reported in the media through a statement issued yesterday in Uyo by the state Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mr. Aniekan Umanah.
Umanah stated that Governor Udom Emmanuel had variously cleared the air on the matter that nothing was found or taken away from Government House, Uyo.
“Let it be stated for the umpteenth time that no such thing was found nor taken from our Government House,’’ the commissioner noted.
Umanah, who described the allegations by some agents of the APC and the members of the public as unfounded and spurious, noted that it was unfortunate that people are still peddling false rumours to the effect that security agents discovered firearms and foreign currencies in the Government House.
The commissioner advised discerning members of the public to ‘disregard’ such fabricated, concocted and self-serving stories by political jobbers whose stock in trade is spreading rumours to survive.
