The Department of State Services DSS has alerted the public about alleged plans by some elements working with external forces to incite religious violence across the country.
According to the security alert, the targeted states include Sokoto, Kano, Kaduna , Plateau, Rivers, Oyo, Lagos and those in the South East.
This was contained in a statement signed by its Public Relations Officer, Department of State Service, Peter Afunanya.
The statement seen by Dandal Kura Radio International indicates that part of the plans was to cause inter-religious conflicts as well as use their foot soldiers to attack some worship centres, religious leaders, personalities, key and vulnerable points.
Department of State Services advised Nigerians to be wary of these antics and shun all divisive tendencies aimed at inciting or setting them against one another.
