Nigerians have been put on a high alert by the Department of State Services, DSS about the schemes of some criminal elements who want to use this Christmas holiday season to launch violent attacks on vulnerable points, like key public places.
DSS noted that these planned attacks might be executed through suicide bombing, the use of explosives, and other dangerous weapons.
According to Vanguard, Peter Afynayan, the DSS’s national Public Relationship s Officer, in a statement said that objective of the planned violent attacks was to create a general sense of fear among the people and subsequently undermine the Government.

“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.
