DSS opens up on alleged sponsor of thugs to attack #EndSARS protesters
The Department of State Services in Nigeria has opened up on the alleged sponsor of thugs to attack the peaceful #EndSars protests.
Within Nigeria recalls that few hours ago, video of thugs coming down from a luxury jeep surfaced on the internet and this gave most Nigerians hints on who is sponsoring the thugs that have been making attempt to disrupt peaceful #EndSars protests.
According to the DSS, none of its personnel has been identified to be involved in the acts of encouraging and supporting thugs to attack #EndSARS protesters.
A statement signed by the DSS spokesperson, Peter Afunaya, read;
“It begs the question to conclude that SUVs and persons dressed in suits and sighted in conflict environments are of the DSS. Fact is that no staff of the DSS will engage in acts as the ones being peddled by these rumour mongers and hate speakers.
The Service is a responsible professional Organization and will endeavor to remain so at all times. It, therefore, wishes to state that the allegations leveled against it are not true and can only be taken as false narratives designed to cast it in bad image as well as inflame the protests.
Consequently, the public is enjoined to disregard the falsehood emanating from sections of the social and mainstream media, subversive groups and interests. The Service uses this opportunity to call on citizens to eschew bitterness, remain law abiding and cooperate with security agencies and indeed, the Government for lasting peace and public safety.”
