Nigeria DSS raises security red alert

THE Department of State Services (DSS) on Tuesday said it had uncovered “syndicated plots” by some undesirable groups to cause a breakdown of law and order across the country.

It said the groups had made arrangements to instigate protests, mass action and violence with a view to causing anarchy and destabilising the country, “in the coming weeks.”

But a retired senior military intelligence expert, Col. Ola Majoyeogbe, urged the DSS to go ahead and arrest the alleged troublemakers, if it was sure of its intelligence.

He said merely raising the alarm was unhelpful.

The DSS made the claims in a statement by its Public Relations Officer,  Dr Peter Afunanya.

Afunanya said: “These predetermined actions have been designed to take place simultaneously in the major cities across the geopolitical zones in the coming weeks. This is more so that the plotters are also targeting the yuletide seasons to accomplish their sinister motives.

Majoyeogbe said the DSS statement raised several questions.

Also, a retired Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Taiwo Lakanu (Rtd), urged Nigerians to shun anything that could divide the country.

He said: “What we need for now is how to grow the economy; Nigerians should come together as one to see to the development of the country. Destabilisation will not augur well for us.

“Secondly, destabilisation is no longer fashionable. Most African countries that tended to do this failed. We should come together and see how the economy will grow. We must make the country a better place for all of us to live in.” Thenationonlineng
