The Department of State Security and the Lagos State Police Command have denied inviting any entertainer for questioning.

Earlier today, a report went viral stating that the DSS and the Lagos State Police Command invited some popular celebrities concerning political statements they made on social media.

Some of the celebrities reportedly quizzed by the law enforcement agencies were music producer, Don Jazzy, and singer Tiwa Savage who were said to have been invited to the Lagos office of the DSS for questioning.

The report also said that they were later summoned alongside singers Yemi Alade and Waje by Zubairu Muazu who is said to be the Lagos State Commissioner of Police.

Muazu is said to have warned the singers to steer clear of political comments so as to avoid the anger of the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

To confirm the veracity of the report, our source spoke with DSS spokesman, Peter Afunnaya, who refuted it, saying, “We didn’t invite any musician.”

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, for further comments about the alleged invitation of the celebrities by the Lagos State Police Command.

Elkana said that Zubairu Muazu, who is said to have invited the singers, “ceased being CP more than 10 months ago.”

He said, “The present CP is Hakeem Odumosu, who came in November last year.”

Continuing, Elkana said, “Zubairu Muazu has even retired from service; he retired as an AIG.”

When asked to confirm if the celebrities were invited by the Lagos State Police Command, Elkana said, “I’m not aware of any invitation.”

According to him, “Don Jazzy is free. He is not with the DSS. I am not aware of such an incident.

Don Jazzy also took to Twitter with a video apparently in reaction to the report that he was quizzed by the police.

“What’s the meaning of quiz o?” he tweeted on Wednesday.
