The Department of State Services (DSS) said it has intercepted a suspected criminal syndicate in Nasarawa State responsible for the diversion and sale of the palliatives meant for the vulnerable.

DSS in a statement issued on Tuesday by Peter Afunanya, its
Public Relations Officer, said among those suspects arrested are officials of Nasarawa State Emergency Management Agency (NASEMA) and their accomplices in the markets, notably Modern Market Lafia, where the items were being resold.

It said the suspects have, however, been handed over for appropriate disciplinary measures.

The Service, therefore, called on members of the public who may have information relating to this emerging trend to report same to the relevant security agencies for necessary action.

The service noted that it earlier received reports from some State Governments relating to diversion or sale of palliatives meant for their citizens.
