The Department of State Services (DSS) has uncovered syndicated plots by some undesirable groups to cause a breakdown of law and order in various parts of the country including Abuja.
According to a statement by the Public Relations Officer of the Service, Peter Afunanya, the arrangement was to instigate protests, mass action and violence with a view to causing anarchy and destabilizing the country.
The statement stated that those predetermined actions had been designed to take place simultaneously in the major cities across the geopolitical zones in the coming weeks adding that the plotters were also targeting the yuletide seasons to accomplish their sinister motives.
It said, “Considering the implications of these on public safety and national security, the Service wishes to warn the anti-democratic elements responsible for these heinous plots to desist forthwith from their inglorious acts.
“Consequently, parents are advised to rein in their wards and enjoin them not to allow themselves to be used to foment trouble. Similarly, Heads of academic and public institutions are to warn their students and employees respectively from engaging in any untoward activity against public order.
“The Service and other sister agencies are at alert and will ensure that peace and security are maintained in all parts of the country before, during and after the festive periods. Law abiding citizens are equally encouraged to go about their normal businesses without fear but report any suspected persons or breach of peace to the nearest security office to them.”
