Criminals Plotting Attacks With Explosives, Suicide Bombing–DSS

There are covert plans by some criminal elements to carry out violent attacks on public places, including key and vulnerable points during the yuletide seasons.

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

This is according to a statement released by the Department of State Services (DSS). The DSS, however said it is collaborating with other sister agencies.

It cautioned 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.

Spokesperson of the intelligence agency, Dr. Peter Afunanya, explained in the release, that their inter-agency collaboration is with a view to ensure that adequate measures are put in place for protection of lives and property.

The objective of the attacks, according Afunanya, is to create a general sense of fear among the people and subsequently undermine the Government.

He 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.

“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 for public communication support.”
