The Edo State Government has said it would not tolerate acts of violence from individuals and groups in the state, threatening to be decisive in dealing warning with offenders.

The government issued the warning through a statement by the state Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Mr Paul Ohonbamu, a copy of which was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Benin.

“The warning is coming in the wake of the emergence of a new leadership of the seventh Edo State House of Assembly, and to ensure that unscrupulous elements do not take matters into their hands to foment trouble in the state.

“The state government will deploy all apparatus of state to ensure that peace is maintained in the state; well-meaning, law-abiding citizens are assured a free space to go about their businesses without any hindrance.

“The Edo State Government is, by this notice, sending a strong warning to individuals and groups with the intention to cause violence in the state, to do away with any such thoughts.

“Any attempt to re-enact the era of violence will be met with the requisite response from the relevant apparatus of the state,” the statement read.

It cautioned parents to dissuade their children from engaging in any criminal act or work as agents of unscrupulous elements with intent to cause civil disturbances, warning that anyone caught, would face the full wrath of the law.

“Edo State, under Governor Godwin Obaseki, is stable, as our shield stands guard and our sword stands ready,” it further warned.
