Politics Nigeria Secret Police to Start Arresting Politicians Who Utter 'Hate Speeches' in Public



The SSS has vowed to go after politicians who utter what it described as "hate speeches" in public places.

In a statement released during the weekend, the SSS said it “observed with total dismay, the inciting utterances of some political actors whose activities heat up the polity.”

It also expressed its "disappointment with these politicians who, in their desperation, are engaged in hate speeches and even sponsorship of radio campaign jingles when the electoral umpire has not authorised such campaigns in line with the Electoral Act.”

The SSS further railed against the contribution of unnamed “unpatriotic” media houses in fuelling the atmosphere of division across the country, saying such activities “negate their constitutional role as the fourth estate of the realm.”

“In line with its statutory mandate of maintaining the peace and internal security of the country, the Service hereby restates its commitment to go after anyone no matter how highly placed who engages in acts capable of causing the breach of peace in the country,” the statement said
