The Department of State Services (DSS) announced on Saturday its plans to showcase weapons crafted by its own personnel.
This revelation came from Yusuf Bichi, the Director General of the DSS, during the graduation ceremony of the Executive Intelligence Management Course (EIMC) 16 participants in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
According to him, the DSS will soon begin to “produce what it eats and eat what it produces.”
Among the weapons the Secret Service will soon unveil are Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), he stated.
Bichi also assured that the agency will continue to support the National Institute for Security Studies to succeed in its quest to impart knowledge that will enhance security in the country.
He charged the participants to utilize the skills they have acquired to develop the country, urging Nigerians to remain patriotic and shun those whom he described as warmongers who want to set the country on fire.
Also at the event is the Vice President, Senator Kashim Shettima.
The Executive Intelligence Management Course (EIMC) 16 commenced in February 2023 with 89 participants drawn from 35 agencies across Nigeria and four other African countries, namely, Niger, The Gambia, Rwanda and Chad.
Three participants lost their lives during the period, leaving 86 participants who graduated on Saturday.
