The Department of State Services (DSS) has issued a stern warning to groups planning to stage protests and violence nationwide, ordering them to shelve such plots capable of destabilizing the country.
DSS issued this warning in a statement by the Public Relations Officer of the DSS, Peter Afunanya, who disclosed that the actions by the groups are designed to take place simultaneously in the major cities across the geopolitical zones in the coming weeks.
It reads, “The Department of State Services (DSS) has uncovered syndicated plots by some undesirable groups to cause a breakdown of law and order in various parts of the country including Abuja. The arrangement is to instigate protests, mass action and violence with a view to causing anarchy and destabilizing the country.
“This is more so that the plotters are also targeting the yuletide seasons to accomplish their sinister motives.”
The security agency asked parents, academic and public institutions to advise their wards not to be used to foment trouble by the instigators.
The DSS urged law-abiding citizens to go about their normal businesses without fear, but report any suspected persons or breach of peace to the nearest security office, as the service and other sister agencies will be at alert and will ensure that peace and security are maintained in all parts of the country before, during and after the festive periods.
