DSS in Nigeria stands for Department of State Services. It is a security agency that was formed to focus on intelligence gathering, counterintelligence, and protection of government officials, high-ranking personalities, and critical infrastructure within the country.

The agency is statutorily responsible for providing security and safeguarding national interests by combating threats such as terrorism, espionage, sabotage, and other forms of criminal activities.
