DSS, police deny inviting Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage, others

Don Jazzy

The Department of State Services (DSS) and the police in Lagos have both denied inviting any entertainer for questioning.

A report by SaharaReporters had said Mavin Records boss Don Jazzy and his former label signee Tiwa Savage were invited to the DSS office in Lagos a fortnight ago for alleged utterances against the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The report also said the duo alongside singers Yemi Alade and Waje were also invited by Zubairu Muazu said to be the Commissioner of Police in Lagos.

However, DSS spokesman Peter Afunnaya told PUNCH on Wednesday that the secret police “didn’t invite any musician”.

Lagos police spokesman Bala Elkana also told the newspaper that Mr Muazu who was said to have invited the entertainers “ceased being CP more than 10 months ago.”

Mr Elkana said Muazu had even retired as an assistant inspector-general of police.

He further said he was not aware that the celebrities were invited.

Meanwhile, Don Jazzy laughed off the report in a video he shared on Twitter earlier in the day.
