DSS uncovers plot to stage violent protest in Nigeria


The Department of State Services has announced that it has uncovered plans by certain individuals to stage violent protests in parts of the country. 

According to a statement issued by DSS Public Relations Officer Peter Afunanya, the protests aim to discredit the Federal Government and security agencies over various socio-economic issues. 

“Intelligence reports have indicated that the plotters include certain politicians who are desperately mobilising unsuspecting student leaders, ethnic-based associations, youth and disgruntled groups for the planned action,” the statement said.

The DSS also noted that it has identified the ring leaders of the plot and is monitoring them to prevent them from causing chaos. 

It also implores University Vice-Chancellors and heads of Tertiary Institutions to discourage their students from engaging in acts that could disrupt public peace and also urges parents and guardians to advise their children and wards to avoid participating in unlawful behaviors.

While the DSS is aware of the government’s efforts and determination to resolve some of the challenges confronting the nation, it warns those desirous of subverting national security to retrace their steps.
