The Department of State Services -DSS has warned politicians to desist from peddling hate speech and all forms of false narratives to ignite violence or pit citizens against President Muhammadu Buhari’s government or the incoming administration of the President-Elect, Bola Tinubu.
In a statement, DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, said violence will consume politicians inciting the breakdown of law and order.
Afunanya alerted the public of plans to violently disrupt the peace in the country and warned those desperate to cause a breakdown of law and order to desist from that.
Reports say that the Service had earlier 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.
It added that the Service will therefore 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.
