The Department of State Services (DSS), on Sunday
morning, foiled an attempted jail break at its headquarters in Abuja, a
statement has said.
The statement, which was signed by Marilyn Ogar, the Deputy
Director, Public Relations, DSS, said that the attempt occurred at
about 7.15 a.m.
Ogar said that “this was when the service suspect handler went to the
detention facility within the headquarters to feed suspects.
“One of the suspects attempted to disarm the handler by hitting him at
the back of his head with his handcuff.
“The suspect’s attempt to escape drew the attention of other guards at
the facility, who fired some shots to warn and deter others.’’
She explained that the gun shots attracted the attention of the military
“with whom we have an understanding of mutual assistance in the
event of any threat.
“The Army immediately deployed a team to reinforce our perimeter
guards to forestall any external collaborators.
“The situation has since been brought under control,’’ Ogar said,
adding that further details would be communicated.
