The Department of State Services (DSS) has warned against any plan by any group to call for unlawful change of government.
DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, in a statement said, “The Service condemns the recent activities of some unscrupulous elements in the name of Nigeria Continuity and Progress (NCP), which has unpatriotically called for a revolution and forceful change of government in the country.
“The Service is aware that the group is working in tandem with a body of subversive agents and adversaries of the Nigerian State.
“The aim is to create an atmosphere of insecurity and use same to cause disaffection among the people. It is evident that the misguided group and its cohorts has also planned to instigate widespread violence against the government in order to actualise its infamous agenda of forceful change of regime.”
The DSS also noted that, “in line with the Service’s mandate of ensuring the internal security of Nigeria, it will stop at nothing to achieve this. Accordingly, the Service will continue to work with other sister agencies and stakeholders to ensure that every segment of the populace pursues its legitimate aspirations in an environment that is devoid of fear or hindrance.
“The DSS not only supports the consolidation of democracy in Nigeria, but will also leave no stone unturned in rooting out persons or groups desirous of truncating the process or undermining the country’s peace and corporate existence. The Service will, therefore, not condone any form of extra-judicial activities or methods designed or adopted by persons or groups to subvert constituted authorities.”
While warning politicians against taking laws into their hands, the DSS noted that “aggrieved politicians are enjoined, for the umpteenth time, to desist, forthwith, from plans to take laws into their hands or engage in acts capable of breaching the peace. Instructively, defaulting persons will surely be brought to book.”
