The Department of State Services (DSS) has alerted Nigerians about the plot by “enemies of the state”, to unleash terror on places of worship also as recreational centers during the Christmas and New Year celebrations.
It said the plot would be executed through the utilization of explosives, bombing, and other dangerous weapons.
The DSS spokesperson for the Service, Peter Afunanya, during a statement on Tuesday, however, assured that the safety forces had taken measures to avert such plans.
Afunanya stated, “The Department of State Services wishes to tell the general public about plans by some criminal elements to hold out violent attacks on public places including key and vulnerable points during the yuletide seasons.
“The planned dastardly acts are to be executed through the utilization of explosives, bombing, and other dangerous weapons.
“The objective is to make a general sense of fear among the people and subsequently undermine the govt .”
The DSS further called on Nigerians to stay extra vigilant and report strange movements to security and enforcement agencies.
