The Department of State Services (DSS) says it has uncovered plans by some persons and groups to take advantage of the latest developments in parts of the country to destabilise it.
In a statement signed on Monday, the DSS Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya, Ph.D, said some prominent personalities and socio-cultural groups have resorted to divisive acts through inciting statements aimed at pitting individuals, groups and ethnic nationalities against another.
While the Service did not disclose any names, it said it is, without doubt, aware of such plans and their sponsors.
The DSS, therefore, warned that it will no longer tolerate the orchestrations by subversive and unscrupulous elements to cause a breakdown of law and order in the country.
It also noted that it is working assiduously with relevant authorities and sister security and law enforcement agencies to ensure that the sinister objective is not achieved.
The Service reiterated its commitment to the internal security of Nigeria, saying that it will, within the confines of the law, decisively deal with planners of the mayhem.
“Law abiding citizens are urged to go about their normal businesses and disregard the antics of agents of destabilization. They should, however, avail the Service and related agencies with useful information about the activities of criminals and groups intent on instigating violence in the country,” the statement read.
