The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied a joint operation with American soldiers after the United States alerted of deliberate terror assaults.
DSS spokesperson, Peter Afunanya suggested PRNigeria that the security firm did not embark on any bodily struggle alongside abroad troops.
“We did not carry out any joint operation with American Soldiers as broadly reported in the media.
“Though we carried out an operation in an Abuja Estate with sister agencies, no foreign troops were involved,” he clarified.
The raid at Trademore Estate led to the arrest of suspected Boko Haram/Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) members.
On Wednesday, the U.S. Embassy launched that the Department of State had accredited the evacuation of its staff in Abuja and their households.
America moreover steered its residents in Nigeria to not journey to the nation’s capital for now, whereas these already in the territory should go away or protect a low profile.
“U.S. citizens should consider departing Abuja using available commercial options”, the advisory has warned.
