SSS Allays Fears Of Violence During Elections


The State Security Service (SSS) has asked Nigerians not to panic as the general elections draw near, as plans have been put in place to ensure the safety of lives and property, during and after the election.

The SSS gave this assurance in a statement issued by its spokesperson, Marilyn Ogar, on Friday. She warned mischief makers against spreading fear in the country.

“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,” the statement read.
