    MASSOB faults DSS on alleged plot to kidnap lawmakers

    THE Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra has dismissed the warning by the Director of State Services that lawmakers may be exposed to kidnapping while on recess during the Yuletide.

    MASSOB’s National Director of Information, Samuel Edeson, told Sunday PUNCH in a telephone interview that such warning was aimed at creating fear in the lawmakers.

    Edeson argued that rather than create fear by sounding a note of warning, the DSS should be proactive in foiling suspected plans to abduct the lawmakers.

    He said, “If they gathered such information and know that such a thing was to happen, they should have arrested those people (kidnappers) instead of coming out to make noise. Nigerian security agencies cannot tell you the truth. This is called propaganda.

    “They say a bad workman always quarrels with his tools. They just want to seek for attention; they don’t know what to do; so, they try to make noise so that people would be afraid and pretend as if they are working while they are not.

    “I don’t see any group of responsible people that would plan to kidnap their representatives. The layman that knows nothing about security cannot be involved in the kidnapping.”

    The MASSOB’s spokesman however challenged the DSS to arrest and prosecute those involved in the alleged plan to abduct National Assembly members.

    He said, “If there is an atom of truth (in their claim), they (DSS) should arrest and arraign such people and not crying wolf and creating fear because they know these honourable men would be going on recess to celebrate with their families.”
