DSS Raises Alarm On Plans To Attack Some States In Nigeria (Full Text)




May 29: We Are Aware Of Plans To Disrupt Tinubu's Inauguration - DSS Raises Fresh Alarm

The Department of State Services (DSS) says it has uncovered plans by some criminal elements to attack some states in Nigeria, particularly the North Central.

The DSS said the sponsors are planning to make it look like an ethno-religious crisis and organize protests similar to the #EndSARS protest.

The alarm was raised in a statement on Saturday in Abuja made available to Naija News by the Public Relations Officer of the DSS, Peter Afunanya.

He observed further that the plot is to use students, striking University lecturers, labour unions, disgruntled individuals, and other strategic groups to carry out the protest.

The statement however added that the service has put measures in place to avert any form of breakdown of law and order in the identified states and the entire country.

The DSS also warned citizens and residents to be law abiding, stating that those who behave contrary will face the full wrath of the law.

Below is the full text of the statement titled ‘DSS UNCOVERS PLOT FOR VIOLENCE IN THE NORTH CENTRAL ZONE.’

“The Department of State Services (DSS) hereby alerts the public of a sinister plan by some elements to stoke violence in parts of the country particularly the North Central. The aim is to cause ethno-religious crisis, ignite reprisals and heat up the polity. In a bid to achieve this, the sponsors have mobilized foot soldiers and held several meetings in and outside the target areas.

“The Service is also aware of a plot to use students, striking University teachers, labour unions, disgruntled individuals and strategic groups as well as exploit the global energy situation to carry out a mass protest like the ENDSARS. This is despite ongoing efforts by Government to address the issues.

“While the Service views the machination as unpatriotic, it is on the trail of the agents of destabilisation who are desirous of using violence to achieve ulterior goals. Though it has emplaced measures to disrupt these tendencies, it warns the ring leaders and their cohorts to desist from acts capable of causing a breakdown of law and order. The public should be rest assured that the Service will, in conjunction with other security agencies, go after the sponsors of this scheme and ensure the law takes it course.

“Citizens are advised not only to engage according to rules but should resist persuasions to be used to destroy their own country. Those who may wish to go contrary to the law will, however, face the consequences.”
