The Department of State Services (DSS) has warned political gladiators and their spokespersons to watch what they say in the process of current political campaigns.
“Political parties and their media managers are advised to apply restraint in their utterances and public communication engagements prior to and after the general elections.
“This is to avoid heating up the polity and evoking tendencies that could lead to violent reactions as well as undermine peace and order.”
In a statement today, February 14, the DSS spokesman, Dr. Peter Afunanya, said that the Service actually invited one the mouthpiece of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Femi Fani-Kayode to its National Headquarters, Abuja on 13th February, 2023.
“The invitation was in respect of an investigation of some of his allegations and insinuations relating to issues relevant to National Security.
“Chief Fani-Kayode faced a Panel which interviewed him on the subject matter. “Afterwards, the Service granted him administrative bail and directed that he makes routine returns to the Office with effect from Wednesday, 15th February, 2023 till otherwise. The investigation, however, continues.”
