A faceless group calling itself Unknown Soldiers Squad (USS) Network
that sent a threat email last week to a Masterweb writer, has given Nigeria
federal government a three week ultimatum. In a comment post made on July 5, the
group gave the federal government three weeks to convene a Sovereign National
Conference (SNC) or face terror in the land. They wrote that if their deadline
for a SNC is not met, the country would witness their wrath which would not
spare both the army and Nigeria State Security Service (SSS) at roadblocks. They
said the ratio of their casualties at roadblocks would be 50 to 1 (apparently 1
USS comment post, just like their threat email of last week was apparently
sent from a cyber cafe. The comment post was made on July 5, two days after the
article on their threat email titled "Nigeria Terror Alert: Masked Group Threatens
To Blow Abuja Into Pieces" was published.
USS comment post is republished unedited below.
USS COMMENT POST
The faceless group this time in the comment post spelt their name correctly
unlike in their threat email to Masterweb writer, Mr. Ikechukwu Enyiagu. A copy
of USS threat email is republished in the article - "Nigeria Terror Alert: Masked
Group Threatens To Blow Abuja Into Pieces" published on our website on
July 3, this month.
Is USS threat to be taken seriously? It makes sense for Nigeria State
Security Service (SSS) to investigate all documented cases of terror warning, to
determine their credibility. This is imperative, in view of the increased
terrorist attacks in recent times in the country, which have not spared Abuja,
the federal capital city. Nigeria Police should be vigilant and monitor all
suspicious activities rather than collecting money from suspects and motorists.
The Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) unit of the force should share intelligence
reports and coordinate activities with SSS.
It is not a bad idea for all ethnic groups in Nigeria to convene and agree or
disagree on how to federate as Nigerians or good African neighbors. Few people
based on their selfish interests should not bully others to order on "which way"
for the nation. Viable nations are not built by force but by general consensus
of the people through their representatives.
