DSS Alerts Nigerians To Plans To Scuttle National Security

The Department of State Services (DSS) has alerted Nigerians to the activities of plotters keen to stage violent protests in parts of the country amid sundry socio-economic matters.

The Service said the plot, understood to be engineered by some politicians, is ostensibly to discredit the Federal Government and security agencies.

This is contained in a Statement by Peter Afunanya, the Public Relations Officer, Department of State Services, National Headquarters, Abuja on Monday, 4th September.

The Statement read in part:

“Intelligence reports have indicated that the plotters include certain politicians who are desperately mobilising unsuspecting student leaders, ethnic based associations, youth and disgruntled groups for the planned action.

“Meanwhile, the Service has identified the ring leaders of the plot as well as sustained monitoring around them in order to deter them from plunging the country into anarchy.

“In view of this development, University Vice-Chancellors and Heads of Tertiary Institutions are advised to discourage their students from engaging in acts capable of derailing public peace.

“Also, parents and guardians are enjoined to admonish their children and wards respectively to shun the lure of participating in inimical behaviours or conducts against law and order.

“While the DSS is aware of Government’s efforts and determination to resolve some of the challenges confronting the nation, it warns those desirous of subverting national security to retrace their steps. This is more so that it will not hesitate to legally come against persons and groups behind the devious plans,” it concluded.
