The Nigerian military has warned citizens to be wary of fake pictures which are surfacing online and are meant to cause division in the country.

The warning was given via a statement released by the spokesman for the Nigerian Defence Headquarters, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar.

The statement reads:

The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) hereby warns that it will not condone any unwholesome acts by persons or group seeking to engage in acts that are capable of causing breaking down of law and order in any part of the country. Citizens are advised to refrain from taking laws into their hands and avoid actions that may cause breach to harmonious co-existence.

Individuals or groups seeking for relevance should follow the due process in accordance with the law of our land and not through acts of brigandage. The DHQ also wishes to advice the general public to ignore inciting pictures, videos and statements posted on some social media platforms which are now confirmed to be the creation of Photoshop with the intention of causing disharmony and divisions among different nationalities.

The military and the security agencies will continue to sustain the current tempo against terrorists, oil thieves, cattle rustlers and other forms of criminalities and urge all law abiding citizens to go about their normal businesses and report any suspicious persons or object to the nearest security post for prompt action.
