DSS Condemns Call For Coup D’etat In Nigeria
The Department of State Services (DSS) condemns the recent activities of some unscrupulous elements in the name of Nigeria Continuity and Progress (NCP) which has unpatriotically called for a revolution and forceful change of government in the country.
This was contained in a press release issued by DSS Public Relations Officer, Mr. Peter Afunanya on Friday, on May 17 in Abuja.
DSS said it is aware that the group is working in tandem with a body of subversive agents and adversaries of the Nigerian State.
It noted that the aim is to create an atmosphere of insecurity and use same to cause disaffection among the people.
“It is evident that the misguided group and its cohorts have also planned to instigate widespread violence against the government in order to actualize their infamous agenda of forceful change of regime,” Mr. Afunanya said.
In line with the Service’s mandate of ensuring the internal security of Nigeria, DSS assured that it will stop at nothing to achieve this.
The statement continues:
“The Service will continue to work with other sister agencies and stakeholders to ensure that every segment of the populace pursues their legitimate aspirations in an environment that is devoid of fear or hindrance.
“The DSS not only supports the consolidation of democracy in Nigeria, but will leave no stone unturned in rooting out persons or groups desirous of truncating the process or undermining the country’s peace and corporate existence.
“The Service will, therefore, not condone any form of extra-judicial activities or methods designed or adopted by persons or groups to subvert constituted authorities.”
The agency, therefore, urged aggrieved politicians to desist, forthwith, from plans to take laws into their hands or engage in acts capable of breaching the peace as defaulting persons will surely be brought to book.
