The Department of State Services (DSS) says it lost two of its operatives during Sunday’s clash with members of the outlawed indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB in Emene, Enugu State. A statement by the Public Relations Officer of the DSS, Dr. Peter Afunanya, which blames IPOB for the loss, notes that the service has put measures in place to ensure that the killers of its personnel and everyone involved in the attack are arrested and brought to justice.
“The Service lost two personnel in what was clearly an unprovoked violent attack launched by IPOB on the team.
“However, 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 statement noted.
The statement condoles with the family of the departed officers and prays for the repose of their souls.
It reaffirms the commitment of the DSS to work with other security agencies to maintain public safety and order, urging law abiding citizens to go about their businesses without fear.
