The Department of State Services (DSS) has vowed to go after the sponsors of violent plots capable of causing a breakdown of law and order in the country.

A statement signed by Peter Afunanya, Ph.D., Public Relations Officer Department of State Services National Headquarters Abuja. 19th March 2022.

It said plots by some elements to stoke violence in the north-central zone have been uncovered by the service, hence the service will not relent in ensuring the law takes its course.

According to him, the sponsors of this violent act have mobilized foot soldiers with constant meetings held in and outside their targeted areas.

“The aim is to cause Ethno-religious crisis, ignite reprisals, and heat up the polity. hereby alerts the public of a sinister plan by some elements to stoke violence in parts of the country particularly the North Central.

The Service is also aware of a plot to use students, striking University teachers, labor 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.

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.

Citizens are advised 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.”
