DSS warns of plans to unleash “ethno-religious violence” in Nigeria

The  Department of State Services (DSS) on Wednesday again raised alarm that “persons and groups” are planning “to exploit some fault lines to cause ethno-religious violence in parts of the country.”

The DSS, in a statement by its Spokesperson, Dr Peter Afunanya, said “latest developments indicate desperate efforts by these groups to subvert public order.”

The secret Police warned that the unnamed individuals and groups “have continued to resort to inciting, unguarded and divisive statements and acts.

“The objective is to pit citizens against one another in order to apparently inflame the embers of tribal and religious discords.”  

The statement stated: “For the umpteenth time, the Service strongly warns these elements to desist forthwith from their (planned) nefarious acts or face the full wraths of the law. 

“However, the DSS will, in collaboration with other security and law enforcement agencies, take necessary steps to ensure the safety of lives and property of the citizenry.”
