Criminals Plan To Plunge Nigeria Into Confusion, Using Bomb Explosions – DSS

The Department of State Service (DSS) has alerted Nigerians of plans by criminal elements to return the country to the pre-2015 era reminiscent of IED attacks on soft and hard targets in parts of the country.

In a statement today, April 26, the spokesperson of the Services, Dr. Peter Afunanya said that the Service has uncovered a ploy by suspected criminal gangs to forge an alliance among themselves with a view to launching further attacks on critical infrastructure and other frequented public places like worship and relaxation centres, especially during and after the holidays and festive celebrations.

The statement said that the objective is to achieve some self- serving interests as well as cause fear among the citizenry, recalling the earlier warning that some groups and individuals were plotting to stoke violence in the country.

The DSS therefore called on the patrons, owners and managers of aforementioned public places, to be wary of this development and implement basic security measures to deter the threats.

“While the Service is committed to the disruption of this trend and pattern of violent attacks, it will continue to partner with other security agencies to ensure that necessary drills are emplaced in order that public peace and order are not jeopardized.

“To this end, residents are enjoined to go about their lawful businesses and share, with security and law enforcement agencies, useful information on the activities of criminals.”

The statement said that the Director General of the Service, Alhaji Yusuf Magaji Bichi, felicitates with Nigerians and wish them a hitch free Workers’ Day and Sallah celebrations.
