Following the recent pre-election violence recorded in Port-Harcourt and Jos, the Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba, has warned stakeholders and politicians to shun thuggery or face the full-wrath of the law.
The Police boss condemned in strong term the two incidents where the Peoples Democratic Party’s campaign vehicles were burnt in Plateau and the secretariat of the All Progressives Congress was destroyed in Rivers.
Abba expressed his sadness at the developments through a statement released by the Force Headquarters spokesperson, Emmanual Ojukwu.
He reminded politicians, party supporters and well meaning Nigerians, that “politics is a means of enthroning custodians of the people’s common wealth, for the overall benefit of all.”
He thereby advised that it(politics) should be “played with every sense of decorum devoid of religious, ethnic and all other forms of primordial sentiments.”
Abba also reassured Nigerians that the perpetrators of the “heinous acts will not go unpunished as the Police will do all it takes to bring them to justice.”
