The Department of State Services (DSS) has raised alert about plans by some criminal elements to carry out violent attacks on public places including key and vulnerable points during the yuletide seasons.
Public Relations Officer, National Headquarters, Dr Peter Afunanya, in a statement in Abuja, on Tuesday said the planned dastardly acts are to be executed through the use of explosives, suicide bombing and other dangerous weapons.
He said the objective is to create a general sense of fear among the people and subsequently undermine the Government.
He assured that the Service will stop at nothing to apprehend the criminal elements and bring them to justice.
Against this backdrop, he called on citizens to be extra vigilant and report strange movements and all suspicions around them to security and law enforcement agencies.
