Nigeria’s secret police, the Department of State Services, DSS, said there are plans by subversive elements to disrupt inauguration of President-Elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Governors-elect across Nigeria on May 29.

The agency, however, issued a strong warning to those behind the evil plans.

The DSS gave the warning in a statement issued by its spokesperson, Peter Afunaya on Thursday.

The Service also warned unaccredited persons to stay away from the event.

The agency also asked the citizens, the media and Civil Society Organisations to adhere strictly to security and civil protocols during the events.

“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.

While pledging its commitment to ensure that the inauguration ceremonies are successful nationwide working with sister agencies, the DSS also reiterated its earlier call for the populace to remain calm and law abiding.
