The Department of State Service (DSS) has warned that there is a plot to recruit some students on vacation into banditry, kidnapping, armed robbery, financial crimes and armed robbery.
Naija News reports that this was made known in a press briefing on Tuesday by the spokesperson of the DSS, Peter Afunanya.
He stated that the secret police would crush insecurity in the country.
According to him, members of the National Assembly/State Houses of Assembly and other public/private sector workers on vacation may be predisposed to threats.
He said: “Let me reiterate at this juncture that those who sponsor kidnapping, banditry, terrorism, insurgency and all kinds of attacks on security agents, civilians and vulnerable populations should have a rethink. These persons, whether in the North or South, know themselves.
“There is no doubt that they have crossed the lines and it is now time to crush them.”
He warned those who are involved in these criminal act should desist from such destabilising acts.
“It also enjoins politicians to play by the rule and avoid statements or activities capable of inflaming the fires of division and violence prior to 2023 elections,” he added.
“Opinion moulders like the clergy, religious and traditional rulers are also to guard their utterances and avoid inciting pronouncements.”
