DSS confirms plots to introduce interim government in Nigeria

The Department of State Services (DSS) on Wednesday said it has identified some key players in the plot for an Interim Government in Nigeria.

The secret service made this known in a series of tweets on Wednesday.

It said the plot for an interim government is a mischievous way to set aside the constitution, undermine civil rule and plunge the country into an avoidable crisis.

However, DSS spokesman Peter Afunanya in a statement said the secret police has identified some key players behind the plots to traucate democracy after the 2023 general election.

Afunanya said the DSS “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 crisis.”

“The illegality is totally unacceptable in a democracy and to the peace loving Nigerians,” Afunanya said.

The DSS spokesman said the plots to impose an interim government are being planned through protests in the country and court orders to block the transition of power to the next government.

Afunanya said the DSS supports the Transition Counil and Buhari in his avowed commitment to hitch-free handover and assured that the president will work to achieve it.

He said the DSS will collaborate with the council and other security agencies to ensure a seamless inauguration of the next government on May 29, 2023.

“Consequently, the service strongly warns those organising to thwart democracy in the country to retract from their devious schemes and orchestrations,” Afunanya said.

He urged media organisations, judicial authorities and civil societies to be watchful and cautious to avoid being used as instruments to subvert peace and stability in Nigeria.

“While monitoring, the DSS will not hesitate to take decisive and necessary legal steps against these misguided elements to frustrate their obvious intentions.”
