DSS raises alarm over plot to disrupt Tinubu’s inauguration May 29

366

The Department of State Services (DSS) says it has uncovered plans by some subversive elements to disrupt the inauguration of President-Elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Vice-President-elect, and governors-elect across the country on May 29.

The DSS has, therefore, sent a strong warning to those behind the plot, a statement by its spokesperson, Dr Peter Afunaya said on Thursday.

Unaccredited persons have been asked to stay away from the event scheduled for Eagles Square, Abuja.

It asked citizens, the media, and Civil Society Organisations to adhere strictly to security and civil protocols during the events.

“The Service is, however, aware of plans by subversive elements to disrupt the programs in parts of the country. The aim is to undermine security agencies’ efforts at ensuring peaceful ceremonies as well as creating panic and fear among members of the public.

“Based on these, citizens, the media, and Civil Society Organisations are advised to adhere strictly to security and civil protocols during the events.

“They are also urged to shun fake news, false alarms, skewed reportage/narratives, and sensationalism that may likely inflame division, tension and violence prior to and after the exercises.

“This is more so that such undesirable acts will serve no purpose other than destroying national unity and cohesion.

“Additionally, all unauthorized (and unaccredited) persons are warned to stay away from restricted and certain designated areas at the event venues,” the DSS said.

The department pledged its commitment to ensuring successful inauguration ceremonies nationwide working with sister agencies, urging the populace to remain calm and law-abiding before, during, and after the events.
