The Department of State Services (DSS) has said some prominent individuals are planning to destabilise parts of the country.

This was made known in a statement by Peter Afunanya, DSS public relations officer on Monday.

He said these prominent people have resorted to divisive acts “through inciting statements aimed at pitting individuals, groups and ethnic nationalities against another.”

Afunanya noted that the DSS is already working with sister agencies to ensure these individuals do not achieve their aim.

“The service is, without doubt, aware of these plans and their sponsors. Consequently, it warns that it will no longer tolerate the orchestrations by subversive and unscrupulous elements to cause a breakdown of law and order in the country,” he said.

“In this regard, 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 reiterates its commitment to the internal security of Nigeria and will, within the confines of the law, decisively deal with planners of the mayhem.”

He urged the public to provide security agencies with useful information on criminal elements and groups around them.
