The Department of State Services (DSS) has issued an alert regarding terrorist plots to strike military bases in border cities across the nation.
The secret agency also issued a red notice to the Nigeria Customs Service in order to prevent insurgent attacks on Ogun border settlements and other border towns across the country, stating that the warning is based on intelligence it gathered.
The DSS instructed customs and other security agencies in the country to put counter-measures in place to disrupt the rebels’ plot in a leaked document dated November 25, 2021, and written to the Customs Area Controller, Nigeria Customs Service, Ogun Area Command, Abeokuta.
The leaked memo was captioned ‘Plans By Insurgents To Launch Attacks On Military Bases In Various Border Communities.’
“Available intelligence indicates plans by insurgents and criminal elements to carry out simultaneous attacks on military posts and bases in various border communities across the nation anytime from now,” the letter signed by the State Director of Security, Ogun State Command, M.B. Abdullahi, read.
“In view of the foregoing and the likelihood, such attacks not limited to the military personnel only, all law enforcement and security agencies with operational bases at border communities are advised to take note of the above threat and emplace countermeasures with emphasis on personal security of operatives to frustrate the planned attack, please.”
