DSS Assures of Its Readiness Against Perpetrators Of Violence In The Country

The Department of State Services (DSS), has advised individuals and groups desirous of plans to violently disrupt peace in the country to desist from that.

The Director of Public Relations, Peter Afunanya, in a Statement expressed displeasure over the disposition of some political actors towards inciting violence which have nothing to gain as doing so will not only consume them but also the innocent.

He assured of the unrelenting commitment of the DSS in ensuring that necessary measures are put in place against perpetrators of violent conducts in the country.

He underlined the resolve of the Service towards providing a conducive environment for citizens and residents to pursue their legitimate businesses.

The Statement read in part:

“It would be recalled that the Service had earlier advised political players to abide by the rules of engagement as well as approach the courts for redress, if and where there are suspicions of infractions on extant electoral laws.

“It is evident that some aggrieved politicians are already taking advantage of this legal process. This, without doubt, is the beauty of democracy. It is strongly believed that this approach enhances peace and security. All and sundry should cherish it.

“Be that as it may, the DSS will not tolerate a situation where persons and/or groups take laws into their hands and champion anarchy. Those peddling fake news, hate speech and all forms of false narratives as basis to ignite violence or pit the people against the present or incoming administrations, at the Federal, State and Parliamentary levels, should stop forthwith.

“A stitch in time, they say, saves nine. Let all be guided,” Afunanya warned.
