DHQ warn against falsehood on social media

The Nigeria Defence Headquarters, Abuja, on Sunday issued a stern warning against spreading falsehood on social media, explaining that the act was capable of disintegrating the country.

In the statement released by its spokesman, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, DHQ said uninformed posting of top security issues on social media tend to threaten Nigeria’s diplomatic interests with other nations.

The statement reads in part: “The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) hereby warns that it will not condone any unwholesome acts by persons or group seeking to engage in acts that are capable of causing breaking down of law and order in any part of the country”, said Brigadier General Abubakar.

“Citizens are advised to refrain from taking laws into their hands and avoid actions that may cause breach to harmonious co-existence. Individuals or groups seeking for relevance should follow the due process in accordance with the law of our land and not through acts of brigandage.

“The DHQ also wishes to advice the general public to ignore inciting pictures, videos and statements posted in some social media platforms.

“The military and the security agencies will continue to sustain the current tempo against terrorists, oil thieves, cattle rustlers and other forms of criminalities and urge all law abiding citizens to go about their normal businesses and report any suspicious persons or object to the nearest security post for prompt action.”
