The government issued the warning through a statement by the state Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Mr Paul Ohonbamu.

“The warning is coming in the wake of the emergence of a new leadership of the 7th 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.

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 Gov. Godwin Obaseki, is stable, as our shield stands guard and our sword stands ready,” it further warned.
