The Department of State Services (DSS), has raised the alarm over plans by some people to violently disrupt peace in the country.
In a statement issued by its spokesman, Peter Afunanya, the DSS on Saturday, warned those desperate to cause a breakdown of law and order to desist from that.
Earlier, the Services 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.
It is evident that some aggrieved politicians are already taking advantage of this legal process. Without doubt, this is the beauty of democracy and it is strongly believed that the approach will enhance peace and security.
The DSS stated that 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,” it further stated .
The DSS stated firmly that it would 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.
