It advised Nigerians to always seek redress through lawful means and to desist from taking the law into their hands no matter the level of provocation.

He advised all parties to a conflict to desist from killing and maiming people as well as destroying properties in times of disagreements, but to engage in dialogue to resolve their differences amicably.
