Abuja (Sundiata Post) – The patrol team of the Department of State Security (DSS) was attacked in Enugu state on Sunday by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), according to DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya.
Afunanya, in a statement, added that the Service lost two of its officials “in what was clearly an unprovoked violent attack”.
The group, which is calling for the secession of the South-East region from Nigeria, has been proscribed by the Federal Government.
The Service theregore condoled with families of the departed officers and also prayed for the repose of their souls.
The DSS added that, all measures have been put in place to ensure that their killers and everyone involved in this dastardly act are promptly apprehended and brought to justice. Consequently, a full scale investigation will be carried out with regard to the incident.
The Service used the opportunity to reaffirms its commitment to assiduously work with other security agencies to maintain public safety and order.
The Security agency urged law abiding citizens and residents to go about their normal businesses without fear.
