Yoruba Nation rally: DSS wants transfer of arrested suspects to Abuja

the police and the DSS are working together to ensure that secessionists in any zone have no room to destabilise Nigeria.

The Department of State Services (DSS) has asked the Lagos State Police Command to transfer the 49 arrested Yoruba Nation protesters to its custody in Abuja.

A senior DSS official, who asked not to be named, disclosed this to Daily Trust on Sunday.

The suspects were arrested at Ojota in Lagos on Friday.

The police had warned people to stay off the rally, which they said could degenerate into violence.

Sunday Igboho, self acclaimed Yoruba activist, was one of the key persons who promoted the rally but after the DSS raided his Ibadan residence, he announced cancellation of the rally.

However, he made a U-turn hours later and asked his supporters to be on ground for the protest.

The DSS official said: ‘’You know Igboho’s group is among the groups who organised that rally. So, some of his boys may be among those arrested. It’s not out of place if the service widens its investigation by bringing those suspects to the headquarters.’’

According to another official, the police and the DSS are working together to ensure that secessionists in any zone have no room to destabilise Nigeria.

He said: ‘’The security agents won’t allow destabilisation of this country under whatever any guise. We’re working in synergy to ensure that whoever plans to destabilise or break law and order of the country, are dealt with.’’

DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, neither answered phone calls made to him nor replied messages sent to him by our correspondent seeking his comment.
