Plans afoot to destablise North – DSS

The Department of State Services (DSS) has raised the alarm of a purported plot to cause violence in parts of the country, particularly in North Central.

Public Relations Officer of the DSS, Dr. Peter Afunanya, disclosed this in a statement, on Saturday, in Abuja.

According to him, measures had been taken to forestall the plot by some unscrupulous elements in the society.

Said he, “While the Service views the machination as unpatriotic, it is on the trail of the agents of destabilisation who are desirous of using violence to achieve ulterior goals.

“Though it has emplaced measures to disrupt these tendencies, it warns the ring leaders and their cohorts to desist from acts capable of causing a breakdown of law and order,” he said.

Afunanya said the plot was to cause the ethno-religious crisis, ignite reprisals and heat the polity.

Meanwhile, in a bid to achieve this, the sponsors have mobilised foot soldiers and held several meetings in and outside the target areas.

He said the Service was also aware of a plot to use students, striking University teachers, labour unions, disgruntled individuals and strategic groups to cause the violence.

According to Afunanya, the target is also to exploit the global energy situation to carry out a mass protest like the #EndSARS, despite the government’s efforts to address the issues.
