The Department of State Services, DSS, has warned the general public about plans by persons and groups who want to cause trouble along ethno-religious fault lines.
In a statement issued by the department head of public relations, Peter Afunanya, Ph.D, it said: “The Department of State Services (DSS) hereby reminds the public of its earlier warnings about plans by persons and groups to exploit some fault lines to cause ethno-religious violence in parts of the country.”
According to the state department, It cited latest development in the country as pointer to the threat being raised by the department.
“Latest developments indicate desperate efforts by these groups to subvert public order. In this regard, they have continued to resort to inciting, unguarded and divisive statements and acts. The objective is to pit citizens against one another in order to apparently inflame the embers of tribal and religious discords.” It warned.
For the umpteenth time, the Service strongly warns these elements to desist forthwith from their (planned) nefarious acts or face the full wraths of the law. However, the DSS will, in collaboration with other security and law enforcement agencies, take necessary steps to ensure the safety of lives and property of the citizenry.
