The Department of State Services (DSS) has said it has uncovered a plot by some groups to carry out mass protests in major cities with the aim to destabilise Nigeria.
The spokesman of the DSS, Peter Afunanya, in a statement on Tuesday, December 3, said the groups were planning to simultaneously carry out demonstrations in major cities across the geopolitical zones of the country in the coming weeks as the festive season approaches to cause breakdown of law.
“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,” Afunanya said.
The DSS urged those plotting to cause breakdown of law and order in the country to drop their plan. The secret police also called on parents and guardians not to allow their wards to be used to cause trouble in the country.
The service said it will work with other agencies to ensure that peace and security is maintained in all parts of the country before, during and after the festive periods.
It urged law-abiding citizens to go about their normal businesses without fear. It also called on citizens to report any breach of peace to the nearest security office.
Meanwhile, on Monday, December 2, some protesters were at the office of the attorney general of the federation, Malami Abubakar, to call for an investigation into an alleged foreign sponsorship of the Revolution Now protest organised by Omoyele Sowore.
The protesters under the platform of Congress for Defence of Democracy (CDF) in Abuja alleged that the #RevolutionNow protest was targeted at destabilizing Nigeria.
While ending their walk at Abubakar's office, the protesters called for an investigation into the activities of Sowore and his foreign collaborators.
