    Despite photo evidence, the Presidency has debunked media reports that suspended Director-General of National Intelligence Agency, Ambassador Ayo Oke, cried after he was denied access into Aso Rock Presidential Villa.

    Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, who spoke on the incident in Abuja on Thursday, said: “the widespread reports that Oke of the National Intelligence Agency had cried are unfair and uncharitable.”

    “Witnesses to his visit to the Vice President and his own personal account, said that Oke arrived to a swarm of journalists which he wanted to avoid. He asked his driver to make a quick turn and instead, he headed to the Glass House, the headquarters of the Department of State Services (DSS).

    ''From there, he put a call to the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, and requested that he help to clear the journalists so that he can make a quiet entry to the VP’s office and that is what happened. In an SUV with darkened windows, no one could have seen an occupant crying,’’ Shehu said.
