The Directorate of State Security (DSS) has assured Nigerians of their safety wherever they are, warning those who have been peddling rumours of violence to desist from such or face the wrath of the law.
This assurance, according to a statement signed by the DSS spokesperson, Marilyn Ogar, came as a result of the mass movement of people from their place of abode to their various homesteads.
She said: “It has come to the knowledge of security agencies that people are relocating to their States of origin in anticipation of violence during the forthcoming general election in the country.
“We wish to reassure the public of their safety wherever they reside as adequate security is assured for all before, during and after the elections.
“We want to also seize this opportunity to caution those who spread falsehood or rumours of violence to desist from such acts. Those who intend to foment trouble are hereby warned that there will be no hiding place, as the long arm of the law will fish them out. Long Live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
