Department of State Services (DSS), Nigeria’s secret service, has warned “misguided elements” (Biafra and ) who are threatening Nigeria’s unity and peaceful co-existence to desist from doing so. This online news platform understands that the DSS in the statement issued by its spokesman, Peter Afunanya, warned that henceforth, the service will no longer tolerate those whose aim is to “throw the country into anarchy.” In the statement, the DSS claimed that “those in the forefront” of the call for the disintegration of Nigeria “are respectable individuals who should be patriotic and not allow their personal ambitions to ruin the nation.” DSS warns Biafra, Oduduwa agitators The statement said: “While the Service reaffirms its unambiguous support to an indivisible, indissoluble 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.” DSS claimed in the statement claimed that among those threatening the federal government and Nigeria’s unity are “some religious and past political leaders who have either called for a forceful change of government or mass action against it.” The statement continued: “It has been established that the main objective for these is to cause a disintegration of the country,” he added. “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 emerging situations and guard against divisive and inciting utterances that may cause a breakdown of law and order.” Meanwhile, NewsOne Nigeria reports that the statement by the DSS, is coming at a time some Nigerians are calling for Nigeria’s breakup from both the proponents of a Biafran government and other aggrieved citizens
