The Department of State Services (DSS) has uncovered fresh plans to incite religious violence across Nigeria.
DSS Spokesperson, Peter Afunanya who disclosed this in a press release Monday said the targeted states include: Sokoto, Kano, Kaduna, Plateau, Rivers, Oyo, Lagos and those in the South East.
Part of the plans according to the Service is to cause inter-religious conflicts as well as use their foot soldiers to attack some worship centres, religious leaders, personalities, key and vulnerable points.
The Service therefore advised Nigerians to be wary of these antics and shun all divisive tendencies aimed at inciting or setting them against one another.
The Service also pledges to collaborate with sister agencies to ensure that public order is maintained but warns those behind the plots to desist from such in the interest of peace, security and development of the country.
However, the Service advised law abiding citizens (and residents) to report suspected breaches of peace around them to the nearest security agencies.
