The State Security Services, SSS has warned the public about an alleged plot by some individuals to incite violence in several parts of the country, particularly in the North Central.
The goal, according to the service’s spokesman, Peter Afunanya, is to create an ethno-religious crisis, elicit retaliation, and heat up the polity.
“In order to accomplish this, the sponsors have mobilised foot soldiers and staged a number of meetings both inside and outside the target locations.”
“The Service is also aware of a conspiracy to employ students, striking University teachers, labour unions, dissatisfied individuals, and strategic groups, as well as exploit the global energy situation, to stage a large protest similar to the ENDSARS.” Despite the government’s continued efforts to resolve the concerns, this continues to be the case.
“While the Service regards the plot as unpatriotic, it is on the lookout for agents of destabilisation who want to use violence to achieve their ends.” Despite the fact that it has put in place measures to counteract these trends, it advises the ringleaders and their followers to refrain from conduct that could result in a breakdown of law and order. The public can be certain that the Service, in collaboration with other security authorities, will pursue the scheme’s sponsors and guarantee that the law is followed.
“Citizens are instructed not just to follow the regulations, but also to oppose persuasions that are intended to ruin their own country.” Those who choose to break the law will, however, suffer the consequences,” Mr Afunanya stated.
