DSS boss warns Nigerians against flaunting wealth in public

An official of the Department of State Services (DSS) has advised Nigerians to desist from the public display of wealth.

The Deputy Director, Security Enforcement of the secret Service in Kwara Command, Paul Oduh, gave the warning while presenting a paper titled “Security tips for health practitioners in Kwara”, at a symposium organized by the state branch of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) in the state on Friday. 

Oduh advised that the brass display of affluence attracts the attention of criminal elements like kidnappers, bandits and others.

“People must adopt moderate lifestyles, so as not to fall prey to these criminal elements. The country is ravaged by insecurity on daily basis. However, people should not despair, security should be concern of all people and they must be enlightened on it” he said

Oduh described security tips as protection tips, given to protect and secure lives and property.

“Security can never be 100 per cent everywhere in the world. People should be knowledgeable enough on those things they can do to protect themselves. Security denotes free from danger and protection of lives and property where individuals can pursue their lawful activities.

There is need to accept that threats exist and people are targets of these threats. This is why people should put in place measures to safeguard themselves from such threats” he said.

The advice by the DSS boss trails the  Naira rain that happened at last week’s burial ceremony of the mother of businessman, Obi Iyiegbu popularly called Obi Cubana in Oba, Anambra State.  

He further advised people to secure their homes and properties with physical security measures like burglary proofs, protective security gadgets, security lights and perimeter fencing, among others.
