DSS Confirms Plan To Set Up Interim Government In Nigeria
The Department of State Services (DSS) has confirmed it’s knowledge of moves by unnamed forces to install an interim government in Nigeria and vowed to support the President and Commander-in-Chief in his avowed commitment to a hitch-free handover.
Though the secret police said it has identified the people behind the plan, it neither arrested them nor disclosed their identities.
In a statement by its spokesman, Peter Afunanya, the DSS said it will collaborate with sister security and law enforcement agencies to ensure seamless inaugurations.
The statement reads in part: “The DSS supports the President and Commander-in-Chief in his avowed commitment to a hitch-free handover and will assiduously work in this direction.
It also supports the Presidential Transition Council and such other related bodies in the States.
“It will collaborate with them and sister security and law enforcement agencies to ensure seamless inaugurations come 29th May, 2023.
“Consequently, the Service strongly warns those organising to thwart democracy in the country to retract from their devious schemes and orchestrations.
“Stakeholders, notably judicial authorities, media and the Civil Society, are enjoined to be watchful and cautious to avoid being used as instruments to subvert peace and stability of the nation.
“While its monitoring continues, the DSS will not hesitate to take decisive and necessary legal steps against these misguided elements to frustrate their obnoxious intentions.”
