The Commissioner of Police takes this opportunity to warn citizens to desist from all unlawful acts, which only threatens to further deteriorate law and order in the country.

Failing which, all efforts will be made to prosecute offenders to the fullest extent of the law.

Further, persons are advised to desist from publishing and sharing unverified and sensitive information, which could further inflame tensions.
