The Department of State Services has raised the alarm about plans by some unnamed people to carry out violent attacks on public places including key and vulnerable points during the yuletide period.
The planned dastardly acts according to spokesman to the service,Peter Afunaya are to be executed through the use of explosives, suicide bombing and other dangerous weapons.
He said the objective is to create a general sense of fear among the people and subsequently undermine the Government.
Against this backdrop, the DSS urged citizens to be extra vigilant and report strange movements and indeed, all suspicions around them to security and law enforcement agencies.
He said 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”
The Service advised 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.
