The Department of State Security
Services (DSS) yesterday implicated a Southsouth governor in a subversive plot
against the Federal Government.
It also accused the governor of allegedly sponsoring those behind
demanding the resignation of its Director- General, Mr. Lawan Daura.
The governor was said to be under investigation also for
sponsoring violent demonstration.
A top official made the disclosures at a confidential briefing in
Abuja against the backdrop of a protest on Monday by a pressure
group, Lawyers in Defence of Democracy.
The official said unknown to Nigerians
the Monday protest had a hidden agenda.
The highly-placed source said: “The Monday protest by the so called
Lawyers in Defence of Democracy was misplaced. We believe that that protest by
the group, claiming to be acting on behalf of some aggrieved lawyers and Human
Rights activists, has other hidden motives.
“As far as the Service is concerned, there is no lawyer in detention and if
these persons mentioned are lawyers, it will be helpful if any discerning
person can inform the Nigerian public when they were called to the Bar or which
law schools or Universities they attended.”
