The Deputy Director Operations, Mr. Fubara Duke, who represented the State Director, Mr. Toma Minti, told newsmen at a media chat in Uyo over the weekend that the Service had begun a mop-up of illegal arms and ammunition ahead of the 2015 general elections.
Duke said the DSS was determined to partner with other security agencies and the general public to ensure that the 2015 elections are held without bloodshed.
According to him, the morale and readiness of DSS operatives in the state have been heightened to confront and surmount any security challenge that may arise before, during and after the election.
On insurgency in the North-east part of the country, he said no part of the country could be regarded as completely safe or immune from the activities of terrorists, adding that Nigerians must accept the fact that the nation is at war.
He condemned a section of the Nigerian media for not playing the role of a dependable ally in the fight against insurgency and criminality being perpetrated by enemies of the country. He accused some media houses of acting as advocates and propagandists for the Boko Haram terrorists, saying some news reports rather than support the anti-terror campaign, has instead created panic in the minds of Nigerians.
He urged the media in the state to exhibit professionalism and caution in the reportage of political and security matters, assuring that the DSS would continue to partner with the media in the discharge of its functions.
