The Nigeria Department of State Service (DSS) on Friday alerted the public of plans to violently disrupt peace in the country.
The Service in a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer Peter Afunanya warns those desperate to cause a breakdown of law and order to desist from such as no one will be spared when caught violating te peace of the country.
Recently, the Service had advised political players to abide by the rules of engagement as well as approach the courts for redress, if and where there are suspicions of infractions on extant electoral laws.
According to Afunanaya ” It is evident that some aggrieved politicians are already taking advantage of this legal process. This, without doubt, is the beauty of democracy. It is strongly believed that this approach enhances peace and security. All and sundry should cherish it.
” Be that as it may, the DSS will not tolerate a situation where persons and/or groups take laws into their hands and champion anarchy. Those peddling fake news, hate speech and all forms of false narratives as basis to ignite violence or pit the people against the present or incoming administrations, at the Federal, State and Parliamentary levels, should stop forthwith.
” Those inciting violence have nothing to gain as doing so will not only consume them but also the innocent. It is otherwise disturbing to see respected personalities use their platforms to mislead or incite citizens. This, to say the least, does not augur well for peaceful coexistence and general order” he said.
The Statement added that the Service will continue to take necessary measures to checkmate these elements who do not wish the country well to ensure that the conducive environment is provided for citizens and residents to pursue their legitimate businesses.
