The Department of State Services (DSS) has revealed that some individuals have plans to interfere with some of the nation’s handover ceremonies.
The service claims that these individuals intend to disrupt the work of the security authorities and to terrorise the populace.

In a statement released on Thursday by the spokesperson for the service, Peter Afunanya, the DSS urged citizens to adhere to the laid down protocols for the events across the country.
The statement partly read;
It would be recalled that the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the Presidential Transition Council on May 18, 2023, held a World Press Conference during which he announced activities for the Presidential inauguration.
The major highlight of the activities is the swearing-in of the President on May 29, 2023, in Abuja. On the same date, new Governors will also be inaugurated in most of the States.
The Service is, however, aware of plans by subversive elements to disrupt the programmes in parts of the country. The aim is to undermine security agencies’ efforts at ensuring peaceful ceremonies as well as creating panic and fear among members of the public.
Based on these, citizens, the media, and Civil Society Organisations are advised to adhere strictly to security and civil protocols during the events.
Advising Nigerians to shun fake news that could cause violence in the country, he urged unaccredited persons to stay away from the inauguration venues
