CO Muhammad Gumel

 Police in Sokoto say they will not tolerate anyone or groups disturbing the peace in the name of the election victory celebration.

The State Commissioner of Police,
Muhammed Gumel gave the warning while addressing newsmen on the command’s recent arrests of suspected lawbreakers in the name of celebrating the election victory 

He said security agencies will also not tolerate those sponsoring fake news, hate speech and all forms of false narratives.

“This is as a basis to ignite violence or abyss and instigate the people against the present or incoming administration in the state are advised to stop forthwith.

“Those inciting violence have nothing to gain as doing so will not only consume them, so also the innocent ones. This, to say the least, does not augur well for peaceful coexistence and general order.

“Residents are on this note assured of enjoying a safe and secure life after the general elections.

“The police command has put in place necessary measures to checkmate these elements and is fully determined to keep arresting all troublemakers who will be treated as common criminals to be brought to justice,” he said.

Gumel reassured of the command’s readiness to provide the best form of security for the forthcoming supplementary elections slated for April 15 in the state.

He warned those desperate in engaging in crimes, such as threats, direct or indirect including causing grievous harm, criminal intimidation, extortion, looting, arson, mischief or causing a breakdown of law and order to desist from that.
