DSS uncovers plots to incite religious violence – see targeted States

The Department of State Services (DSS) has uncovered fresh plans to incite religious violence across Nigeria.

DSS Spokesperson, Peter Afunanya who disclosed this in a press release Monday said the targeted states include: Sokoto, Kano, Kaduna, Plateau, Rivers, Oyo, Lagos and those in the South East.

He also revealed  the plots are being hatched by some elements in concert with external forces.

The statement reads: “The Department of State Services (DSS) wishes to alert the public about plans by some elements working with external forces to incite religious violence across the country. Targeted States include Sokoto, Kano, Kaduna, Plateau, Rivers, Oyo, Lagos and those in the South East.

“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.”
