The Department of State Services (DSS) has cautioned politicians attempting to take the laws into their hands, warning that it won’t allow any Nigerian to do this for selfish reasons irrespective of their position.
Daily Times gathered that the DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, issued the warning to politicians in a statement yesterday.
The Secret Police vowed to deal with anyone or group that attempts to cause mayhem in Nigeria.
Afunanya said: “The Service wishes to warn those who, in the guise of political mobilisation and supposed pursuit of group interests, engage in hostile and subversive activities, to desist forthwith from advancing their inimical and parochial causes.
“The Service will not stand idly and watch disgruntled and aggrieved elements take laws into their hands and cause mayhem in the polity.
“In line with its mandate of detecting and preventing threats and crimes against the internal security of Nigeria, the Service hereby reiterates its previous warning that it will henceforth not condone unruly conducts of persons and groups that ought to know better.
“In this regard, it will not hesitate to, within the confines of the law, decisively deal with such persons and/or groups, no matter how highly placed, that may wish to test its resolve.”
