DSS alleges plot to incite religious violence nationwide

The Department of State Services (DSS) on Monday alerted of plans “by some elements working with external forces” to incite religious violence across the country. 

Nigeria’s secret police said that the States targeted for the alleged religious violence include Sokoto, Kano, Kaduna, Plateau, Rivers, Oyo, Lagos and the States of the South East.

According to a statement by DSS Spokesperson, Dr Peter Afunanya, “part of the plans is to cause inter-religious conflicts as well as use their foot soldiers to attack some worship centres, religious leaders, personalities, key and vulnerable points.

“Consequently, Nigerians are advised to be wary of these antics and shun all divisive tendencies aimed at inciting or setting them against one another.

While the Service pledges to collaborate with sister agencies to ensure that public order is maintained, those hatching these plots are warned to desist from such in the interest of peace, security and development of the country.

“However, law abiding citizens (and residents) are encouraged to report suspected breaches of peace around them to the nearest security agencies.”
