Department of Security Service (DSS) has said it has begun a detailed investigation to arrest perpetrators and sponsors of ethnic and regional hate campaign.
The agency in a statement by Tony Opuiyo said that all those involved in these condemnable acts would be unmasked and dealt with in accordance with the rule of law.
The service said it has watched with keen interest the disturbing trend by desperate and mischievous elements pushing the nation to calamity and destruction.
It cited the case of the Arewa youths who called for the relocation of the Igbos from the North, followed by the Niger Delta watchdogs threatening all northerners to quit Niger Delta region
Another group, DSS added, went to the extent of harvesting from the internet, a horrific accident scene, for the purpose of making it look like a site of massacre of Igbo ethnic group by northern youths.
However, the agency said it has established that the purported murder scene being depicted as a field of massacre was a high casualty accident scene which occurred along Owo-Akure road, Ondo State, on 3rd March, 2016.
He stated that those involved in the misleading and despicable acts are warned to desist from anything capable of causing disaffection and stoking nationwide tensions.
