The Nigeria Police Force, NPF, has warned mischief makers against unguarded utterances and misinformation.
NPF issued the warning ahead of the Presidential Election Tribunal’s verdict on the February 14 poll.
Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the spokesman of the NPF, disclosed this in a statement he issued on Tuesday.
Adejobi also disclosed the deployment of police officers across Nigeria ahead of Wednesday’s verdict.
The statement reads partly: “In its bid to fortify security architecture and forestall any breakdown of law and order across the country as a result of the forthcoming Presidential Election Petition Tribunal Judgment scheduled to be passed on Wednesday, September 6, 2023, the Nigeria Police Force has strengthened its deployment across the length and breadth of Nigeria.
“The NPF strongly cautions all individuals, including mischief makers and political gladiators, to be cautious in their actions and statements as the Force will not condone activities capable of inciting violence or causing a descent into anarchy.
“It is imperative for all citizens to embrace peace and maintain calm, regardless of their political affiliations, to ensure a peaceful and secure environment.”
The tribunal will on Wednesday rule on the petition of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and Labour Party’s Peter Obi’s petition against the victory of President Bola Tinubu.
