THE Department of State Services (DSS) has alerted the nation of plans by some disgruntled elements to cause violence against the May 29, 2023 inauguration of the President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed TINUBU (GCFR) and state governors-elect.
The alert was issued in a Press Statement available to SOJ WORLDWIDE and signed by the Public Relations Officer of the DSS, Dr. Peter Afunanya on Thursday, May 25, 2023.
According to Afunanya, the agency has discovered that some subversive elements have planned to cause unrest in some parts of the country to create fear and panic.
“The Service is, however, aware of plans by subversive elements to disrupt the programmes 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 unauthorised (and unaccredited) persons are warned to stay away from restricted and certain designated areas at the event venues. The Service reiterates its earlier call for the populace to remain calm and law abiding.”
“Meanwhile, it will continue to sustain collaboration with sister agencies to ensure successful inaugurations.”
