The Police Command in Nasarawa has warned political parties and their supporters against any act of violence ahead of the Court of Appeal judgment on the governorship election in the state.
The acting Commissioner of Police in the state, DCP Shettima Muhammad, gave the warning during a press conference on Monday in Lafia.
He said that the police in collaboration with other security agencies have beefed up security across the state in order to forestall any breakdown of law and order before and after the judgment.
“Security personnel have been adequately deployed to strategic locations in the State to maintain peace.
“I, hereby call on leaders of all political parties to prevail on their supporters to shun unguarded utterances that may trigger political tension or engage in mass action that may be seen as preparation for violent procession.
“They should also celebrate moderately without infringing on the fundamental rights of members of the public.
“Anyone or group that tries to disrupt peace and cause breakdown of law and order shall face the full wrath of the law, ” he said.
DAILY POST recalls that the Appeal Court in Abuja had last week reserved judgment in an appeal filed by the Governor of the state, Abdullahi Sule of the All Progressives Congress, APC, seeking to set aside the ruling of the tribunal which earlier nullified his election.
