The Department of State Service (DSS), has alerted the public of plans to violently disrupt peace in the country, as the Service warns those desperate to cause breakdown of law and order to desist from the action.

DSS 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.

The service noted that it was evident that some aggrieved politicians are taking advantage of the legal process, stressing that it was the beauty of democracy.

This was revealed by the Public Relations Officer Department Of State Services, Peter Afunanya, who stated that the DSS will not tolerate a situation where people would take laws into their hands and champion anarchy.

Afunanya urged that those peddling fake news, hate speech and all forms of false narratives, as a basis to ignite violence or put  people against the present or incoming administrations, at the Federal, State and Parliamentary levels, should stop.

The Public Relations Officer added that the Service will continue to take necessary measures to checkmate those found wanting, noting that DSS would ensure that a conducive environment is provided for citizens and residents, in order for them to pursue their legitimate businesses.
