There are plans to destabilise Nigeria, says DSS
By Akin Abiola, Abuja
The Department of State Services (DSS) said it has uncovered plans to destabilise the country.
The Directorate of State Services in a statement on Monday said some unscrupulous Nigerians were gathering to destabilise the country.
The statement signed by its spokesperson, Dr Peter Afunanya, made available to Irohinoodua said the groups are desirous of taking advantage of latest developments in parts of the country to destabilize it.
He said “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.”
The DSS said further warned that it will no longer tolerate the orchestrations by subversive and unscrupulous elements to cause a breakdown of law and order in the country.
It said 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.”
It states further “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.”
