The Department of State Services has asked Nigerians to remain calm following the security alert issued by the United States Embassy in Abuja that there could be possible terrorist attack in the state capital this week.
The DSS in a statement by its Spokesman Dr. Peter Afunanya advised Nigerians to be cautious.
The agency, however, assured that it would work with other security agencies to maintain the peace.
It asked Nigerians to the agency with information relating to threats and suspicious criminal acts.
The statement reads, “The Department of State Services has received several enquiries relating to the security advisory issued by the US Embassy in Abuja, today, 23/10/22. The public may recall that the Service had variously issued similar warnings in the past.
“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,” Afunanya said in the statement released around 11:20pm on Sunday.
