We Will Deal with Hate Speech, Criminal Defamatory Makers – NPF
The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) says that the force will deal mercilessly with anyone involved in hate speech, criminal defamatory conducts during this campaigns period and beyond.
This is following President Muhammadu Buhari’s declaration few days ago that security agencies will begin to go after makers of hate speech both online and offline.
The force threatens to arrest whomever is found wanting and apply the heavy weight of the law on them.
The statement released by the force headquarters says:
“The Force will not condone hate speeches, indecent & criminal defamatory conducts from any individual(s)/group(s) that can cause threat to public peace & safety anywhere in the Country during the campaigns & beyond. The full weight of the law will be applied on anyone arrested”
