The Department of State Services (DSS) on Sunday, warned the members of the public against further making unguarded utterances that are inimical to the unity of Nigeria as a nation.
The security department alleged that religious and political leaders who have either called for forceful change of government or mass action are collaborating with external forces seeking to plunge Nigeria into crisis.
Peter Afunanya, the spokesman of the service accused some clerics and prominent leaders of making divisive comments.
The service warned that it will ”no longer tolerate deliberate machinations by subversive and hostile groups whose agenda is to throw the country into anarchy so as to serve the interests of their sponsors.”
Afunanya said the DSS won’t allow some individuals to break up the country through their ”unsavoury statements”.
”It is instructive to note that the ballot box remains the vehicle of change in a democracy.
”In this regard, self-centred individuals and groups are warned to stop engaging in acts inimical to the peace and sovereignty of this nation.” He added.
Recall that recently, many prominent Nigerians have continued to either call for the impeachment or resignation of the president from office, if he can’t bring the current insecurity crisis rocking the country under control.
Among the leading voices are Fr. While Mbaka, Pastor Paul Eneche, Bishop Wale Oke, prominent politicians, some Nigerian youths, among others.
