DSS Alerts Nigerians Of Plan By Disgruntled Elements To Reincarnate ENDSARS Violence

Spokesperson of the DSS

The secret police, Department of State Services (DSS) has alerted Nigerians of a sinister plan by some elements to stoke violence in parts of the country, particularly the North Central, similar to the ENDSARS violence that nearly brought the country to its knees a couple of years ago.
The aim of the planned violence, according to the Public Relations Officer of the DSS, Dr. Peter Afunanya, in a statement today, March 19, is to cause ethno-religious crisis, ignite reprisals and heat up the polity.
He said that in a bid to achieve this, the sponsors have mobilised foot soldiers and held several meetings in and outside the target areas.
“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.”
Dr. Afunaya said that 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 advised the citizens not only to engage according to rules but should resist persuasions to be used to destroy their own country.
“Those who may wish to go contrary to the law will, however, face the consequences.”
