The Department of State Services (DSS) has condemned, in very strong terms, what it has described as the unsavoury statements by those it referred as misguided elements who, by their words and actions, have continued to threaten the government, the sovereignty of the state and corporate existence of the country.

The DSS also said it has noted what it viewed as unnecessary vituperations and activities of some religious and past political leaders who have either called for forceful change of government or mass action against it. The Service pointed out that it has been established that the main objective for these is to cause a disintegration of the country.

Reacting through a press statement on Sunday evening by its Spokesman, Dr Peter Afunnanya, the DSS observed that "It is unfortunate that those in the forefront of this are respectable individuals who should be patriotic and not allow their personal ambitions to ruin the nation. The Service has also noted their desperation and penchant to collaborate with external forces and influences against Nigeria.

"They are reminded that even though democracy offers free speech, it does not give room to reckless pronouncements capable of undermining security. 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. In the same manner, influential personalities should be sensitive to the emerging situations and guard against divisive and inciting utterances that may cause a breakdown of law and order", the statement said.

Recently, the Service, according to its Spokesman, Dr Afunnanya, had invited and cautioned some persons who deniably recounted their earlier statements or said they were quoted out of context. "The public should be wary of such individuals and their co-travellers who, incite them in the open but, turn in the secret to retrieve their words after they had caused the damage.

"While the Service reaffirms its unambiguous support to an indivisible, indisolluble and united Nigerian State in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution, 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.

"Consequently, the Servcie is assiduously working with other security and law enforcement agencies to ensure the maintenance of peace and internal security of the country", the DSS assured. NNL.
