Nigeria’s Department of State Services (DSS) has alerted citizens about plots by some people to bomb some places.
A statement by the agency on Tuesday said some individuals have perfected plans to wreak havoc on some places. It warned such plotters to desist from their plans.
“The Department of State Services (DSS) wishes to inform the public about plans by some criminal elements to carry out violent attacks on public places including key and vulnerable points during the yuletide seasons,” it said in the statement.
“The planned dastardly acts are to be executed through the use of explosives, suicide bombing and other dangerous weapons.
“The objective is to create a general sense of fear among the people and subsequently undermine the Government.
“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.”
The DSS is one of Nigeria’s various security agencies.
