CAN to DSS: Arrest those killing Nigerians and stop raising alarm

Previously, the Department of State Services (DSS) had accused some group of persons of inciting ethno-religious unrest in some areas in the country. In a statement by the public relations officer (PRO) of the agency, Peter Afunanya, he warned that those persons would face the arm of the law if they do not desist from such nefarious activities.

Likewise, he stated that the DSS will collaborate with other law enforcement agencies to ensure that the citizens are safe and their properties secured.

In response, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has asked the Department of State Services (DSS) to bring to book those bandits that are taking the lives of Nigerians, rather than constantly talking about it.

The spokesman for Samson Ayokunle, the president of CAN, Adebayo Oladeji, made a statement that the DSS should lay more focus on fishing out the kidnappers, bandits, and other forces causing unrest in the country.

He also said that anytime the DSS raises alarm, they should be taken seriously because their job also includes intelligence gathering. However, their job is not limited to it.

Oladimeji also recalled that the agency had previously cautioned people against inciting any form of violence in any part of the country. But that did not yield any result as no one was arrested or even arraigned.

It has not also made those persons who are kidnapping, killing and causing mayhem in the country to be brought to book. The spokesman for the CAN president further asked if the DSS are not aware of the atrocities and crimes going on in the country.

According to him, the sad occurrences speak badly of us as a nation. Also, he noted that kidnappers, bandits, and terrorists can be apprehended and until this is done, the security agencies will not gain the trust that they truly deserve. He also had a message for the media.

‘’The media should stand up and ask our government serious questions through front page comments and editorial. Things are becoming increasingly complicated daily. Criminals are operating as if our security agencies are on holidays,’’ he said.

“CAN has been calling for total overhauling of the security architecture, but that has fallen on deaf ears. May God deliver us from those criminals who are now operating with impunity,” he added.
