The Department of State Service (DSS) says it will not tolerate groups or individuals inciting anarchy in the country.

In a statement by Peter Afunanya, its spokesperson, the DSS warned against a situation where some persons would take the “laws into their hands and champion anarchy”.

“It would be recalled 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,” Afunanya said.

“It is evident that some aggrieved politicians are already taking advantage of this legal process. This, without a 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 a 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.”

The DSS added that it would continue to take necessary measures “to checkmate these elements who do not wish the country well”.
