News Agency of Nigeria
The Department of State Services (DSS) has urged the media and civil society organizations (CSOs) to shun fake news, false alarms, skewed reportage, and sensationalism before the May 29 inauguration.
The Public Relations Officer of DSS, Dr. Peter Afunanya, made the call in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.
He said the call was to guard against reports that could inflame division, tension, and violence before and after the inauguration.
Afunanya said the service was aware of plans by subversive elements to disrupt the program in parts of the country.
According to him, they aim to undermine security agencies’ efforts at ensuring peaceful ceremonies and create panic and fear among members of the public.
“Based on these, citizens, the media and Civil Society Organisations are advised to adhere strictly to security and civil protocols during the events.
“They are also urged to shun fake news, false alarms, skewed reportage/narratives and sensationalism that may likely inflame division, tension and violence prior to and after the exercises,” he said.
The DSS spokesman said undesirable acts would serve no purpose other than destroying national unity and cohesion.
Afunanya warned unauthorized and non-accredited persons to stay away from restricted and certain designated areas at the inauguration venues.
He called on the public to remain calm and law-abiding, adding that the DSS would continue to sustain collaboration with sister agencies to ensure successful inauguration ceremonies nationwide.
