The Department of State Services Wednesday afternoon, confirmed an alleged plot to throw Nigeria into crisis with a view to foisting on the country, an interim governnement.
The DSS said the plot has been intensified further even after the general elections saying that those behind the plot are seeking various avenues to achieve their target.
Peter Afunanya, the image maker of the agency disclosed this in a statement released on Wednesday noting that some key players in the plot have been identified
The DSS described the move as not only abberation but a mischievous way to set aside the constitution and undermine civil rule as well as plunge the country into an avoidable crisis.
“The Service considers the plot, being pursued by these entrenched interests, as not only an aberration but a mischievous way to set aside the constitution and undermine civil rule as well as plunge the country into an avoidable crisis. The illegality is totally unacceptable in a democracy and to the peace loving Nigerians,” the statement read
“This is even more so that the machination is taking place after the peaceful conduct of the elections in most parts of the country. The planners, in their many meetings, have weighed various options, which include, among others to sponsor endless violent mass protests in major cities to warrant a declaration of State of Emergency. Another is to obtain frivolous court injunctions to forestall the inauguration of new executive administrations and legislative houses at the Federal and State levels.”
The agency said is in support with the commitment of President Muhammad Buhari to a hitch-free handover adding that it would assiduously work in that direction.
“It also supports the Presidential Transition Council and such other related bodies in the States.
“It will collaborate with them and sister security and law enforcement agencies to ensure seamless inaugurations come 29th May, 2023.
“Consequently, the Service strongly warns those organising to thwart democracy in the country to retract from their devious schemes and orchestrations.
“Stakeholders, notably judicial authorities, media and the Civil Society, are enjoined to be watchful and cautious to avoid being used as instruments to subvert peace and stability of the nation.”
While its monitoring continues, the DSS promised not to hesitate to take decisive and necessary legal steps against these misguided elements to frustrate their obnoxious intentions.
