Police Warn Tinubu, Obi, Others To Caution Their Supporters

The Nigeria Police Force has told politicians to caution their supporters against threatening those who hold different political opinions.

The police through its spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi, in an interview with The PUNCH, said there is punishment in the law for persons who threaten the lives of others over politcal dissent.

“Threat to life is a criminal offence, and everyone has the right to take up cases against anyone who threatens their life or engages in an act capable of making their life precarious, or causing a problem in the country. Hence, whosoever feels threatened is at liberty to approach the police formally, for necessary action.

“The Electoral Act is clear on electoral offences and appropriate punishments. Also, our criminal laws can be applied in handling election-related crises. We have our laws and we are duty-bound to enforce them at all times.

“While we urge all political actors to be law-abiding and desist from violating the provisions of the Electoral Act, 2022, we will always engage relevant stakeholders, especially politicians, in deliberations, from time to time, on how to have a seamless exercise in 2023,” he said.
