The Department of State Services (DSS) has called on the populace to assist security agencies with useful information regarding threats to criminal acts in their neighborhood.
A statement by the service Public Relations Officer Peter Afunanya Ph.D., 23rd October 2022 said before the security advisory issued by the US Embassy, the Service had variously issued similar warnings on unscrupulous elements seeking to undermine the public peace.
Thus assuring the public of the service commitment to guaranteeing a peaceful environment.
“While advising that necessary precautions are taken by all and sundry, the populace is enjoined to remain alert and assist security agencies with useful information regarding threats and suspicious criminal acts around them.
“Meanwhile, the Service calls for calm as it works with other law enforcement agencies and stakeholders to maintain peace and order in and beyond Abuja.”
Recall, the U. S had issued a security alert on the elevated risk of attacks in Nigeria specifically in Abuja on 23rd October 2022.
