Abuja - The Department of State Services
(DSS) has appealed to members of the public to help arrest some officials from
the organisation over an alleged robbery in Abuja.
It is reported DSS operatives were involved in the
robbery and sharing, on November 20, of the sum of N310 million belonging to a
Bureau De Change operator in the capital city.
On Sunday, two of the five suspects were arrested.
“This action of the Service is in line with the posture
of the current Administration and DSS management focus on professionalism,
transparency and accountability,” said Tony Opuiyo, DSS spokesman.

He said those so far arrested had been suspended pending
the completion of investigations.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the Service wants to
reiterate its commitment to the basic ideals and principles as established by
its forebears and will not spare anyone found to be contravening the rules and
regulations or the laws of the land,” Opuiyo said.
He therefore encouraged members of the public with useful
information that could lead to the arrest of those at large to volunteer same
to the service or other security agency.
“The DSS also wishes to use this opportunity to
assure all law abiding citizens of their safety and urge them to partner with
the Service in the smooth discharge of its responsibilities.”
