Security Agency Warns Against Democracy Day Protests

The Department of State Services (DSS) has issued a stern warning against planned physical protests set to disrupt the upcoming Democracy Day celebrations on 12th June, 2024.

Director of Public Relations and Strategic Communications, Peter Afunanya, emphasised the agency’s zero-tolerance stance towards any attempts to incite violence and destabilize the nation.

Afunanya stressed, “The determination by some non-state actors to incite mass disaffection through demonstrations that may turn violent will not be tolerated.”

He urged citizens to exercise their rights responsibly and avoid being manipulated into causing disorder or anarchy.

The DSS reaffirmed its commitment to safeguarding public safety and national security, emphasizing the importance of peaceful dialogue over disruptive actions.

In light of the planned protests, the DSS urged citizens to report any suspicious activities and assured the public of its readiness to collaborate with other security agencies to maintain peace and protect lives and property.

Afunanya also called for unity and patriotism in building a better Nigeria, while reminding citizens to use official channels to address grievances.
