2015-03-26 08:01

Lagos - The Department of State Security Services (SSS) has advised Nigerians to be security-conscious amid the threats of terror attacks during the upcoming Presidential elections.

The elections are scheduled to commence on Saturday.

“Accordingly, we wish to advice all registered voters to go out and exercise their civic responsibility as security is guaranteed. It is imperative to remind all eligible voters to be law abiding and security conscious while exercising their franchise," Marilyn Ogar, DSS Deputy Director Public Relations, said.

"Equally, they should remain vigilant in crowded environments before, during and after the elections and abide by all stipulated guidelines emplaced to ensure peaceful conduct.”

She advised voters to be wary of people in loose or bulky midriff clothing, which are inappropriate for the weather, look out for unattended bags, luggage, dustbins, strange containers and other suspicious items.

“Similarly, all vehicles, motorcycles, tricycles and bicycles must be parked far away from the polling stations. All forms of trading should be discouraged, suspicious persons, activities and movements should be promptly reported to security agents,” Ogar advised.

She said the task of nation building was a collective responsibility.

“Therefore, let us all play our parts and shun violence. Once again, we restate our commitment to ensuring a peaceful atmosphere for all Nigerians to contribute towards strengthening our democracy.”
