“Remain vigilant during Eid-el-Fitr celebrations” – DSS urges Muslims

As Nigerian Muslims prepare to celebrate Eid-el-Fitr following the conclusion of Ramadan, the Department of State Services (DSS) has called on them to prioritise security consciousness at prayer grounds nationwide.

In a statement issued by Peter Afunanya, the spokesperson of the DSS, citizens were urged to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities to the appropriate authorities.

The DSS assured the public that it would collaborate with other security agencies to ensure a nationwide seamless and safe Eid-el-Fitr celebration.

Part of the statement read: “Everyone is advised to be security conscious and report suspicious activities to security and law enforcement organisations.

“On its part, the Service will sustain collaboration with sister security agencies and indeed other stakeholders to ensure hitch-free celebrations.

“The DSS wishes to celebrate the Eid-El-Fitr festival with the Muslim Ummah. It congratulates them on the peaceful completion of Ramadan, a fasting period, prayer and reflection for the Muslim faithful worldwide.

“While joining them to thank Allah for the opportunity to complete this auspicious obligation, the Service shares with them the core values of the festival, which include love, mercy and compassion.

“These morals resonate deeply with the ideals of peace, harmony and generosity that are fundamental to our country’s collective good.

“As this joyous occasion is being commemorated, the Service urges everyone to celebrate responsibly, exemplify the true essence of the event and strive for common humanity based on harmonious coexistence, good conscience and neighbourliness.

“The DSS admonishes citizens to carry forward the spirit of charity, empathy and unity beyond the festivities and abstain from any acts that are capable of undermining these principles.

“Above all, the director-general, management and entire staff of the Department of State Services wish you a peaceful celebration and pray that the season brings joy, goodwill and prosperity to all.”
