The director-general of the Department of State Services (DSS)Yusuf Bichi has urged Nigerians to stop celebrating the death of security operatives killed on duty by insurgents.
Bichi who was represented by the spokesperson of the agency, Peter Afunaya, made the plea at an event organised by the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) to celebrate the 2020 International Youth Day.
He said: “It is not good that our youths, our mothers, the entire citizens will continue to condemn security agencies.
Someone that is killed in Borno or elsewhere is the father of someone, he is a husband of a wife and an uncle to someone. So you do not celebrate over the death of someone because you think they are not doing so much. They are and in very challenging conditions.”
He urged Nigerians to learn to support security operatives rather than berate them for not living up to their expectations because, the soldiers who die in the process of fighting for the nation sacrifice their life for the country and they have families, friends, that will miss them.
