Terror alert: DSS enjoins Nigerians to take necessary precautions
The Department of State Services (DSS) has called on Nigerians to take necessary precautions and be security conscious in view of the security advisory released by the US Embassy on possible terror attack on Abuja.

Dr Peter Afunanya, the Public Relations Officer of DSS made the call in a statement on Monday in Abuja.

He said that the DSS had issued similar advisory in the past and urged residents to remain alert and calm.

“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,” he added.
