The Department of State Services (DSS) has urged Nigerians to report any suspicious activities during the Eid-El-Fitr.

The service had on 4th of March, 2024, urged citizens to be vigilant against public dangers, especially Improvised Explosive Devices, urging Nigerians to stay informed about potential threats and avoid crowded or suspicious areas.

However, in a statement on Tuesday, the Director of PR and Strategic Communications, DSS, Peter Afunanya, assured Nigerians that the service would work in collaboration with other security agencies to ensure the security of the citizens during the festive period.

The statement read, “Similarly, everyone is advised to be security conscious as well as report suspicious activities to security and law enforcement organisations.

“On its part, the service will sustain collaboration with sister security agencies and indeed other stakeholders to ensure hitch-free celebrations”

Afunanya, however, congratulated Muslims in the country for the completion of the fasting and prayers.

He said, “DSS wishes to celebrate the Eid-El-Fitr festival with the Muslim Ummah. It heartily congratulates them on the peaceful completion of Ramadan, which is a period of fasting, prayer, and reflection for the Muslim faithful worldwide.

“While joining them to thank Allah for the opportunity to complete this auspicious obligation, the service shares with them, the core values of the festival which include love, mercy, and compassion.

“These morals resonate deeply with the ideals of peace, harmony, and generosity that are fundamental to our country’s collective good.

“As this joyous occasion is being commemorated, the Service urges everyone to celebrate responsibly, exemplify the true essence of the event, and strive for common humanity based on harmonious coexistence, a good conscience, and neighbourliness.

“The DSS admonishes citizens to carry forward the spirit of charity, empathy, and unity beyond the festivities and abstain from any acts that are capable of undermining these principles,” he added.
