A statement signed by the Public Relations Officer, Department of State Services, National Headquarters, Abuja says,  the Department of State Services (DSS) wishes to reiterate its earlier alert to the nation of plans by subversive groups and individuals to undermine national security, peace and unity in the country.

These elements are determined to exploit political differences and other occurrences, within and outside the country, to destabilize the nation.

They also initiate narratives to deepen their subversive objectives so as to achieve preferred illegal outcomes.

The aim is to set the country on fire as well as inflame passions across ethnic and religious divides with expected violent consequences.

Also, the Service expresses dismay over the increasing use of fake news and unsubstantiated information spread across social media platforms to deceive and incite sections of the populace to civil unrest.

While condemning the unpatriotic and misguided activities of these anti-social elements, the Service equally warns them to desist forthwith from their unholy acts as the full weight of the law will be brought against them.

In the same vein, citizens are enjoined to remain law abiding, peaceful and report any suspicions likely to inhibit public safety to appropriate authorities.

Meanwhile, the President  of the Media Forum of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (shi'ites), Ibrahim Musa, in a statement on Monday  alleged that the FG “is planning to kill innocent security personnel, journalists and some members of the public and  put the blame on members of the Islamic Movement just as they did in Abuja in July”.

Recall that following   the July 22 clash between police  and  Shi’ites in Abuja which led to the death of DCP Umar Usman, a corps member, Precious Owolabi, and about 11 IMN  members,  the  FG proscribed the sect.
