The Department of State Services (DSS) has warned Nigerians to avoid making inciting comments ahead of the upcoming elections.

The DSS also warned citizens to avoid promoting disunity and violence in the country.

This was contained in a statement released by the agency’s Deputy Director for Public Relations, Marilyn Ogar on April 7, 2015.

It reads:

“Its attention has been drawn to certain unguarded, inciting and divisive statements by some persons.”

“We want to warn those stoking these embers of violence and disunity to desist, as this will not be tolerated. We should all strive to strengthen our nascent democracy as we work towards building a better Nigeria.”

“We want to also seize this opportunity to thank all Nigerians for their peaceful conduct during the Presidential election and urge them to shun all forms of violence before, during and after the Governorship and State Houses of Assembly election which will take place this weekend 11th April, 2015.”

The DSS also assured Nigerians that adequate security would be provided during the polls.
