Kaduna warns perpetrators of hate speech

25 January 2016, 10:14Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Kaduna State Security Council has warned individuals and groups against engaging in conduct likely to incite ethno-religious crises.

Samuel Aruwan, government spokesperson, said the warning followed reports on utterances of certain individuals that were capable of creating social unrest.

He said the attention of the Kaduna State Security Council had been drawn to illegal activities going on in some institutions of higher learning, places of  worship and in social gatherings aimed at inciting people along religious and ethnic lines.

Council said it had noted the regrettable circulation of posters and leaflets containing hate speech.

"While condemning this sort of behaviour, the Council warned those involved to desists or face the full weight of the law,” Aruwan said.

He reminded that the Constitution of the country granted every citizen the right to freely express and hold opinion.

He said the right to free speech was one of the noblest expressions of liberty and was intended to uplift mankind.

"Therefore, it cannot be used as a cover to set people against each other or to be exercised so recklessly that it becomes a barrier to the enjoyment of similar rights by others."

“All those preaching hate are hereby cautioned that the defence of the constitution will compel their prosecution for violating its provisions," added Aruwan.
