Arewa Quit Notice to Igbo, illegal, unconstitutional - says DSS


DSS Speaks on Arewa quit notice to Igbos
The Department of State Services (DSS) yesterday, described the October 1 quit notice from a coalition of Arewa youths to Igbo, as illegal and unconstitutional.

It warned those causing disaffection and tension to immediately desist from such acts, or be ready to face the music.

In a statement by its spokesman, Tony Opuiyo, the security agency said it would deal with those found culpable while noting that it had launched an investigation to unmask sponsors of the recent wave of hate campaigns and quit notice orders.

The statement noted that the relocation order was not only illegal, but was against the spirit of the constitution, which provided for freedom of movement and association among others.

“Well-meaning and law abiding citizens and residents are enjoined to disregard persuasion by these tribal jingoists to make our beloved country a theatre of the absurd and blood-letting. It is time for us, Nigerians, to show our humanness and patriotism, which have been our defining strength as one united indivisible nation.

“The service has already commenced a detailed investigation to get the perpetrators of these hate campaigns as well as their sponsors. At the appropriate time all those involved in these condemnable acts will be unmasked and decisively dealt with in line with the laws of the land.”
