The Department of State Service (DSS), has reassured Nigerians of their safety irrespective of their location following rumours of likely violence during the rescheduled general elections.
The agency’s spokesperson, Marilyn Ogar, who made this known in a statement on Monday in Abuja, warned those peddling rumours of violence to desist or face the wrath of the law.
The statement reads: “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 elections 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”.
