This training and other incentives, Yusuf maintained would help the social media movers and citizen journalists to disseminate vital information about happenings in the state and the country at large, as well as render useless, the activities of those misinforming the society on the cyber wave.

On why their activities seemed to be secret, DSS boss noted that it was because they are into crime combating in collaboration with other law enforcement agents like police, civil defence, soldiers, etc, and security heads like the monarchs, governors, and others, who better stood in a position of making it known after relevant investigations had been concluded.

Earlier speaking, the AOP coordinator, Bamidele Ajayi, said his group was at the agency to inform them that it was a responsible body poised to use its diverse members’ online platforms for the growth and development of the society.
