The Department of State Services (DSS) has warned that henceforth, it will no longer tolerate those who are bent on throw the country into anarchy.
In a statement on Sunday by the spokesman of the secret service, Peter Afunanya, said
the DSS will no longer tolerate deliberate machinations by subversive and hostile groups whose agenda is to throw the country into anarchy.
The statement reads: “While the Service reaffirms its unambiguous support to an indivisible, indissoluble and united Nigerian State in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution, it will no longer tolerate deliberate machinations by subversive and hostile groups whose agenda is to throw the country into anarchy so as to serve the interests of their sponsors.
“Consequently, the Servcie is assiduously working with other security and law enforcement agencies to ensure the maintenance of peace and internal security of the country.”
The DSS spokesman said,
among those threatening the federal government and Nigeria’s unity include “some religious and past political leaders who have either called for a forceful change of government or mass action against it.”
The state said, “It has been established that the main objective for these is to cause a disintegration of the country.
“It is unfortunate that those in the forefront of this are respectable individuals who should be patriotic and not allow their personal ambitions to ruin the nation.
“The Service has also noted their desperation and penchant to collaborate with external forces and influences against Nigeria.
“They are reminded that even though democracy offers free speech, it does not give room to reckless pronouncements capable of undermining security. It is instructive to note that the ballot box remains the vehicle of change in a democracy.”
Afunaya said, “In this regard, self-centred individuals and groups are warned to stop engaging in acts inimical to the peace and sovereignty of this nation.
“In the same manner, influential personalities should be sensitive to emerging situations and guard against divisive and inciting utterances that may cause a breakdown of law and order.”
