DSS ALERTS PUBLIC OVER THE PLOTS TO INCITE RELIGIOUS VIOLENCE IN NIGERIA

The Department of State Services (DSS) on Monday has alerted the general public the purported plans by some elements working with external forces to incite religious violence across the country.

The Directorate through its PRO, Peter Afunanya (Ph.D) stated this in a press release emanated from his office yesterday.

According to him, those unscrupulous elements have targeted most of the states include Sokoto, Kano, Kaduna, Plateau, Rivers, Oyo, Lagos and those in the South East.

The statement read further”part of the plans is to cause inter-religious conflicts as well as use their foot soldiers to attack some worship centres, religious leaders, personalities, key and vulnerable points”.

“Consequently, Nigerians are advised to be wary of these antics and shun all divisive tendencies aimed at inciting or setting them against one another”.

“While the Service pledges to collaborate with sister agencies to ensure that public order is maintained, those hatching these plots are warned to desist from such in the interest of peace, security and development of the country. However, law abiding citizens (and residents) are encouraged to report suspected breaches of peace around them to the nearest security agencies” the statement said.
