The Department of State Service (DSS) has called on Nigerians and foreigners in the country to remain calm as the department is taking all necessary measures to assure the safety of everyone in the country.
The Public Relations Officer of the Service Peter Afunanya made the call in a press statement sent to newsmen in Abuja on Sunday while reacting to a security advisory issued by the US Embassy in Abuja.
The statement by the DSS reads, “The Department of State Services (DSS) 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”.
