DSS Rings Alarm Bell on Plot to Attack Public Spaces During the Yuletide

    
The Department of State Services (DSS) has informed the public about what it describes as plans by some criminal elements to carry out violent attacks on public places including key and vulnerable points during the yuletide seasons. 

It said the planned dastardly acts are to be executed through the use of explosives, suicide bombing and other dangerous weapons.  

An objective which it said is to create a general sense of fear among the people and subsequently undermine the Government.

A statement signed by the Public Relations Officer of DSS Peter Afunanya said: ''Against this backdrop, citizens are called upon to be extra vigilant and report strange movements and indeed, all suspicions around them to security and law enforcement agencies.  

''On its part, the Service is collaborating with other sister agencies to ensure that adequate measures are put in place for protection of lives and property.

''To further achieve this purpose, the Service has provided these emergency response numbers *08132222105* and *09030002189* for urgent contacts.  It is also using this opportunity to unveil its interactive website *www.dss.gov.ng* for public communication support. 

''Everyone is encouraged to take advantage of these platforms and similar ones provided by related agencies to timely reach and avail them (security agencies) of required information.

''However, the Service advises those planning to cause chaos and damage to public peace to desist from such as it will stop at nothing to apprehend and bring them to justice.  

''While assuring citizens and residents of their safety during and after the festive periods, the DGSS, Alhaji YM. Bichi fwc, with his Management and Staff, wishes all, Happy Celebrations and a Prosperous 2021.'' the statement concluded.
