DSS Cautions Against Plot To Destabilise Nigeria




The Department of State Services (DSS) on Monday warned some prominent persons and groups against plot to destabilise parts of the country.

In a statement, Peter Afunanya, DSS public relations officer, said the secret police is working security agencies to ensure that these people do not achieve their aim.

The DSS stated that these prominent individuals are taking advantage of the latest developments in parts of the country to destabilize it.

The statement reads in part: “Some prominent personalities and socio-cultural groups have resorted to divisive acts through inciting statements aimed at pitting individuals, groups and ethnic nationalities against another. The Service is, without doubt, aware of these plans and their sponsors.

“Consequently, it warns that it will no longer tolerate the orchestrations by subversive and unscrupulous elements to cause a breakdown of law and order in the country.

In this regard, it is working assiduously with relevant authorities and sister security and law enforcement agencies to ensure that the sinister objective is not achieved.

“The Service reiterates its commitment to the internal security of Nigeria and will, within the confines of the law, decisively deal with planners of the mayhem.

“Law-abiding citizens are urged to go about their normal businesses and disregard the antics of agents of destabilization.

“They should, however, avail the Service and related agencies with useful information about the activities of criminals and groups intent on instigating violence in the country.”
