?In as much as the military recognizes the supremacy of the Constitution which guarantees freedom of expression and association, he said, the Constitution also frowned against individuals or groups hiding under it to stir up trouble and insecurity in the land. 

"Any individual or groups who have genuine complain or grievances should use the available means of dialogue for amicable resolution but certainly not violence, as it will not be tolerated."

Abubakar said DHQ will continue to partner with other security agencies to protect and provide enabling environment to all citizens to engage in their respective and legitimate businesses without fear of molestation.
