The Nigeria Department of State Services (DSS) on Saturday said it has uncovered plans by some group of spoiler elements to stoke violence in parts of the country particularly the North Central part of Nigeria.
In a statement by the Public Relations Officer of the Service Dr. Peter Afunanya, the aim is to cause ethno-religious crisis, ignite reprisals and heat up the polity.
Dr. Afunanya said in a bid to achieve this, the sponsors have mobilised foot soldiers and held several meetings in and outside the target areas.
In his words ” 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.”
The DSS warns that those who may wish to go contrary to the law will, however, face the consequences.
