Nigeria Police Sound Warning Ahead of Presidential Tribunal Verdict… He Who Has Ears, Let Him Hear!


The Nigerian police have issued a stern caution against the dissemination of false information and reckless statements in anticipation of the presidential tribunal’s judgment scheduled for today, Wednesday.

On Monday, the tribunal set Wednesday as the day for delivering its verdict on the petitions challenging the triumph of President Bola Tinubu in the February 25 election. The Allied Peoples Movement (APM), Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have all approached the tribunal to contest Tinubu’s victory.

Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the police spokesperson, conveyed in a statement on Tuesday that the force “will not tolerate activities that could incite violence or lead to chaos.” He also revealed that the police have deployed officers nationwide to prevent any breach of law and order following the tribunal’s decision.

“The Nigeria Police Force has bolstered its presence across the entire country. The police reaffirm their commitment to ensuring the safety of lives and property before, during, and after the judgment,” the statement affirmed.

“The NPF has meticulously implemented all necessary deployments and security measures during this critical period, with officers and personnel fully prepared to uphold order and enforce laws while respecting the rights and freedoms of all citizens.

“Furthermore, the NPF strongly advises all individuals, including troublemakers and political figures, to exercise caution in their actions and statements, as the Force will not tolerate activities that could incite violence or provoke anarchy.

“It is crucial for all citizens, irrespective of their political affiliations, to embrace peace and maintain serenity to ensure a tranquil and secure environment.”

Earlier today, Tukur Gusau, the director of information at the defense headquarters (DHQ), issued a warning to those contemplating violence on Wednesday to reconsider their actions. Gusau emphasized that the military, in cooperation with other security agencies, would not stand idle and permit anyone to provoke unrest.
