DSS Raises Alarm Over Plot To Stage Protests

The Department of State Services (DSS) on Monday in a statement said it has uncovered plans by some elements in parts of the country to stage violent protests in order to discredit the Federal Government and security agencies over sundry socio-economic matters.

The Service’ spokesman Peter Afunanya raised the alarm in an early Monday statement but said the DSS has identified the ring leaders of the plot.

“The Department of State Services (DSS) hereby informs the public that it has uncovered plans by some elements in parts of the country to stage violent protests in order to discredit the Federal Government and security agencies over sundry socio-economic matters,” the statement read.

“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.”

The secret police, however, instructed tertiary institution heads and vice chancellors of universities to prevent their students from taking part in actions that could disrupt public peace.

The DSS further stated that parents and guardians are required to caution their children and wards to resist the temptation to engage in unlawful behavior or conduct.

“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,” the agency said.
