DSS refutes escape of personnel from Kuje prison


Share post:

The Department of State Services (DSS) has said none of its personnel escaped from the kuje prison during the bomb attack that rocked the facility on Tuesday night.



In a statement issued and signed by its spokesman,  Peter Afunaya, the DSS said its attention has been drawn to an online Vanguard newspaper report of 6th July, 2022 captioned: Kuje Prison Attack: One Suspect Reportedly Caught After Hot Chase by Gallant Officers.



He said the report alleged that one of the escaping inmates who “claimed to be a DSS personnel was apprehended by NCS operatives near Kwali after a chase.” The report further stated that the so called DSS operative also claimed to be “carrying out a special mission in the forest”.



While debunking the report, Afunaya said the Service wishes to state that none of its personnel was involved in the escape episode.



” In fact, at the point of the attack on the prison, no DSS personnel was an inmate at the holding facility just as the claim of carrying out a special assignment was non-existent. The Vanguard report is not factual and therefore misleading. The public is advised to disregard it” he said
