The Department of State Services (DSS) has condemned the recent activities of some people it described as unscrupulous elements which have unpatriotically called for a revolution and forceful change of government in the country.
Recall that the Nigerian Military had in a statement promised to protect the hard-earned democratic system of governance being practised in the country after a group called Nigeria Continuity and Progress (NCP) call for forceful take over of government by the military.
The service which said it is aware that the group is working in tandem with a body of subversive agents and adversaries of the Nigerian state, with an aim to create an atmosphere of insecurity and use same to cause disaffection among the people said 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.
The DSS, therefore, said it will stop at nothing to achieve calm in the nation and 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,” it said.
The service, therefore, enjoined aggrieved politicians to desist, forthwith, from plans to take laws into their hands or engage in acts capable of breaching the peace.
“Instructively, defaulting persons will surely be brought to book.” the DSS stressed.
