DSS identifies suspects behind plot for interim govt
The Department of State Services (DSS) says it has identified some key players in the plot for an Interim Government in Nigeria.
A statement by the secret police signed by its Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya says the service considers the plot, being pursued by these entrenched interests, as not only an aberration but a mischievous way to set aside the constitution and undermine civil rule as well as plunge the country into an avoidable crisis.
“The illegality is totally unacceptable in a democracy and to the peace loving Nigerians”, the statement reads.
The DSS said, the machination is taking place despite the peaceful conduct of the elections in most parts of the country.
According to the secret police, the planners, in their many meetings, have weighed various options, which include, among others, to sponsor endless violent mass protests in major cities to warrant a declaration of State of Emergency.
Another is to allegedly obtain frivolous court injunctions to forestall the inauguration of new executive administrations and legislative houses at the Federal and State levels.
The service however cautions judicial authorities, media and the civil Society, to be watchful and avoid being used as instruments to subvert peace and stability of the nation.
