DSS Uncovers Violence Plan In The North Central Zone
The Department of State Services (DSS) has alerted the public of a sinister plan by some elements to stoke violence in parts of the country, particularly the North Central.
According to a press release on Saturday 19th March 2022 signed by the Public Relations Officer Department of State Services National Headquarters, Peter Afunanya, Ph.D., fsi, he said that the aim is to cause an ethnoreligious crisis, ignite reprisals, and heat the polity. In a bid to achieve this, the sponsors have mobilized foot soldiers and held several meetings in and outside the target areas.
The statement read, “The Service is also aware of a plot to use students, striking university teachers, labor unions, disgruntled individuals, and strategic groups to carry out a mass protest like the ENDSARS. This is despite ongoing efforts by the government to address the issues.
“While the service views the machination as unpatriotic, it is on the trail of the agents of destabilization 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 rest assured that the service will, in conjunction with other security agencies, go after the sponsors of this scheme and ensure the law takes its course.
“Citizens are advised not only to play by the rules but also to resist persuasions that could be used to destroy their own country. Those who may wish to go contrary to the law will, however, face the consequences, the statement concluded.
