SSS gives voters security tips for election day

The Department of State Services has advised voters in Saturday’s election to be wary of persons who dress in “loose or bulky midriff clothing”.

This advice is contained in a statement signed by Marilyn Ogar, the DSS spokesperson, in Abuja on Wednesday.

The DSS also advised them to look out for “unattended bags, luggage, dustbins, strange containers and other suspicious items.

“Equally, they should remain vigilant in crowded environments before, during and after the elections and abide by all stipulated guidelines emplaced to ensure peaceful conduct.

“Similarly, all vehicles, motorcycles, tricycles and bicycles must be parked far away from the polling stations.

“All forms of trading should be discouraged, suspicious persons, activities and movements should be promptly reported to security agents,” the DSS stated.

It called on registered voters to go out and exercise their civic responsibility as their security was guaranteed, but urged them to be law abiding and security conscious.

“Once again, we restate our commitment to ensuring a peaceful atmosphere for all Nigerians to contribute toward strengthening our democracy,” the statement stated.
