State Security Services (SSS), the secret police of Nigeria, confirmed an alarm that had been raised weeks before the general elections on Wednesday by revealing that some important people are preparing an illegitimate interim administration for Nigeria.
According to the agency, the conspiracy is a “aberration and a malicious” attempt to disregard the constitution, undermine civil authority, and throw the nation into a preventable crisis.
According to a statement by the SSS spokesperson, Peter Afunanya, the planners have considered a number of options during their numerous meetings, including, among others, funding unending violent mass rallies in key cities to support the creation of a State of Emergency.
“Another is to get baseless court orders to prevent the installation of new executive and legislative branches.”, Mr Afunanya said.
Atiku has called the result “a rape of democracy” after getting 29 per cent of the votes and Mr Obi, who got 25 per cent, told supporters they had been “robbed” of victory, and said the election is “worst in Nigeria’s recent history.”
An interim government would prevent Mr Tinubu from being inaugurated as president on May 29 as constitutionally expected.
The SSS issued a statement warning individuals organizing to undermine democracy in the nation to back off from their plans and orchestrations.
In order to prevent being used as tools to undermine the peace and stability of the country, it asked all relevant parties, including the judiciary, media, and civil society, to exercise caution and vigilance.
