The Defense Headquarters, DHQ, has warned oil vandals and terrorists, cattle rustlers and others suspected to be behind attacks in different parts of the country, that it would not condone unwholesome acts capable of causing a break down of law and order in any part of the country.
The defence headquarters gave the warning on Sunday in Abuja through a statement issued by its Acting Director of Defence Information, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar.
The statement reads in part: “Citizens are advised to refrain from taking laws into their hands and avoid actions that may cause a breach to harmonious co-existence.
“Individuals or groups seeking for relevance should follow the due process in accordance with the law of our land and not through acts of brigandage.
“The DHQ also wishes to advise the general public to ignore inciting pictures, videos and statements posted in some social media platforms which are now confirmed to be the creation of photoshops, with the intention of causing disharmony and divisions among different nationalities.
“The military and the security agencies will continue to sustain the current tempo against terrorists, oil thieves, cattle rustlers and other forms of criminalities and urge all law abiding citizens to go about their normal businesses and report any suspicious persons or object to the nearest security post for prompt action.”
