The Department of State Services has alerted the nation of renewed plots by malevolent elements to create more chaos in the country by using improvised explosive devices, IED, to bomb public places in the country.
The Spokesman for the DSS, Dr. Peter Afunanya, said in a statement made available to journalists today said that the evil men were plotting to return Nigeria to the pre-2015 era when they bombed both soft and hard targets, particularly, worship and relaxation centres.
The statement pointed out that though the attacks had already been carried out in some parts of the country, the service had uncovered a ploy by suspected criminal gangs to forge an alliance among themselves with a view to launching further attacks on critical infrastructure and other frequented public places like worship and relaxation centres, especially during and after the holidays and festive celebrations.
The DSS advised patrons, owners and managers of aforementioned public places to be wary of this development and implement basic security measures to deter the threats.
The DSS however expressed total commitment to the disruption of this trend and pattern of violent attacks , saying it will continue to partner with other security agencies to ensure that necessary drills are emplaced in order not to allow the public peace and order are jeopardized.
