The Department of State Services (DSS), has warned of an attempt to disrupt the May 29 inauguration of President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

DSS warned Nigerians against unruly behaviour and non-adherence to protocols during Tinubu’s inauguration activities.

The secret police said any attempt to disrupt the swearing-in will be akin to undermining Nigeria’s security agencies.

In a statement he signed, the spokesman of DSS, Peter Afunanya, said: “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.”

The secret police warned all unauthorised persons to steer clear of restricted and certain designated areas at the event venues.

Afunanya, however, said the DSS would work with other security agencies to ensure a peaceful transition.
