The Department of State Services (DSS) on Tuesday disclosed fresh plots by some groups to destabilise Nigeria with protest and violence.
This was revealed in a statement by the spokesperson of the DSS, Peter Afunanya.
The secret police stated that the groups objective was to use the various protest, which would hold simultaneously across Nigeria, to cause anarchy and destabilise the country.
“These predetermined actions have been designed to take place simultaneously in the major cities across the geopolitical zones in the coming weeks. This is more so that the plotters are also targeting the yuletide seasons to accomplish their sinister motives,” Afunanya said.
The DSS warned parents to stop their children from allowing themselves to be used to foment trouble and cause chaos in the country.
The agency also charged law-abiding citizens to go about their normal businesses without fear but report any breach of peace to the nearest security office.
“Parents are advised to rein in their wards and enjoin them not to allow themselves to be used to foment trouble. Similarly, heads of academic and public institutions are to warn their students and employees respectively from engaging in any untoward activity against public order,” Afunanya said.
“The Service and other sister agencies are at alert and will ensure that peace and security are maintained in all parts of the country before, during and after the festive periods. Law-abiding citizens are equally encouraged to go about their normal businesses without fear but report any suspected persons or breach of peace to the nearest security office to them.”
