Labour Party mocks DSS over Interim Govt plot allegation

A spokesperson for the Labour Party (LP) Presidential Campaign Committee, Mr. Kenneth Okonkwo, has said that the Department of State Services (DSS) has mocked Nigerian courts over its recent warning that some individuals were plotting to undermine Nigeria’s democracy.

Okonkwo stated, on Thursday, via his Twitter account that the DSS alert was an allegation against the nation’s courts that some politicians want to utilise it to issue spurious injunctions.

According to Mr. Okonkwo, the DSS has put the integrity of the Judiciary into question and needed to further expose individuals who may be guilty in the system.

He wrote, “The @OfficialDSSNG mocks the Nigerian judiciary. Alleges that planners of Interim Government intends to use them to truncate democracy by making them issue frivolous injunctions. Hmmm!! So Nigerian courts are now notorious injunction issuers? DSS should go further and expose them.”

His statement came after the secret police revealed, on Wednesday, that it had identified certain important persons attempting to derail the May 29 transition to a new government and force an interim government in Nigeria.

According to a statement issued by the DSS’s spokesperson, Dr. Peter Afunanya, the plot by the identified individuals was to disregard the Constitution and undermine civil rule, as well as to sponsor mass protests and plunge the country into an avoidable crisis, in order to pave the way for the planned Interim Government.

According to the statement, those involved in the plot intended to acquire frivolous court injunctions to prevent the inauguration of new executive administrations and legislative chambers at the federal and state levels on May 29.
