The Department of State Services has raised objection over alleged plot to destabilise northern Nigeria’s most populous state of Kano.

The secret service also disclosed that it has arrested two suspects over call and deliberate incitement for violence in parts of the state through various social media channels.

In a statement on Thursday, DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, claimed that an unnamed political party plans to storm the offices of security agencies today, March 16 in solidarity with the suspected hoodlums.

”In those potentially harmful messages, they specifically championed certain political interests and called on their supporters to violently attack those opposed to them,” Afunanya said in the statement.

He said the suspects also called for attacks on security personnel during the Saturday’s governorship and house of assembly elections in the state.

“A particular political party in Kano threatened to organise a protest march in the metropolis as a result of the planned attacks.

“While the service alerts the public of this planned illegal action, it calls on the concerned party to shelve it forthwith or be ready to face the consequences. The DSS will not idly watch misguided persons or groups undermine the peace and security of the state,” the statement read in part.
