DSS Reveals Plot to Sabotage Tinubu's May 29 Swearing-In Ceremony

A plot to disrupt Tinubu’s inauguration, Nigeria’s DSS calls for vigilance and adherence to protocols.

The Department of State Services (DSS), Nigeria’s top domestic intelligence agency, has made public a disturbing conspiracy intended to sabotage the approaching presidential inauguration. The main ceremony slated for May 29th, 2023, is expected to see President-Elect Tinubu sworn in, an occasion that would mark a pivotal moment in the country’s democratic path.

“The Service is, however, aware of plans by subversive elements to disrupt the programmes in parts of the country.” – Peter Afunanya, Public Relations Officer, DSS

The DSS, in its official statement, warns of an underlying threat from unspecified elements intending to breach security and mar the solemnity of the inauguration. This purported plot, seemingly, aims at not only disturbing the peace but also instilling fear and panic among the populace.

Unveiling the Threat

Just ten days ago, on 18th May, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the Presidential Transition Council (PTC) held a World Press Conference detailing the activities planned for the Presidential inauguration. One of the most anticipated events is the swearing-in ceremony in Abuja. New governors across various states are also set to be inaugurated on the same day.

The disturbing revelation of the subversive plot was a stark deviation from the usual anticipation that accompanies the swearing-in ceremony. As Abuja prepares for the significant event, this disclosure has undoubtedly cast a shadow over the forthcoming activities.

DSS’s Reassurance Amidst Concerns

The Department of State Services has, however, reassured citizens of its commitment to ensuring peaceful ceremonies across the nation. In its public statement, the DSS emphasized that it would continue collaborating with sister agencies for the successful inauguration of President-elect Tinubu and the new governors.

“Meanwhile, it will continue to sustain collaboration with sister agencies to ensure successful inaugurations.” – Peter Afunanya, Public Relations Officer, DSS

In addition, the DSS has called for strict adherence to security and civil protocols during the events. It urges citizens, media, and Civil Society Organisations to resist the lure of fake news, false alarms, and sensationalism that could fuel tension and violence.

Adhering to Protocols and Maintaining Peace

The Department of State Services strongly warns against unauthorised and unaccredited persons infringing on restricted and designated areas at the event venues. The importance of adherence to civil protocols and maintaining decorum during the inauguration activities has been underscored.

The country looks forward to the May 29 inauguration, with the DSS vowing to remain vigilant and steadfast in its efforts to quell any form of disruption.
