JUST IN : DSS makes arrest over diversion of palliatives, recovers items

The Department of State Services (DSS) says its operatives have arrested some individuals involved in diversion of palliatives meant to cushion effect of fuel subsidy removal.

A statement signed by Public Relations Officer of DSS, Peter Afunanya, on Tuesday, said some items were also recovered from suspects.

The secret police called on Nigerians to report anyone or group engaged in diversion of palliatives for necessary action.

The statement reads : “The Department of State Services (DSS) has received reports from some State Governments relating to diversion or sale of palliatives meant for their citizens.

Consequently, the Service undertook investigations in that regard and has recovered some of the items as well as apprehended the suspects.

While this operation is ongoing in other states, the Service has for instance, intercepted a suspected criminal syndicate in Nasarawa State responsible for the diversion and sale of the palliatives meant for the vulnerable in the place. Among those suspects are officials of Nasarawa State Emergency Management Agency (NASEMA) and their accomplices in the markets, notably Modern Market Lafia, where the items were being resold. The suspects have, however, been handed over for appropriate disciplinary measures.

The Service, therefore, calls on members of the public who may have information relating to this emerging trend to report same to the relevant security agencies for necessary action.”
