“it is a burden and the Federal Government needed to take punitive steps in checkmating the trend in the interest for peace.
”I am reminding the perpetrators of the evil act to reconsider their sinister disservice to the quest for progress and development”.
The monarch also advised the disputing groups to desist from taking the laws into their hands in preference to dialogue to resolve disputes.by treading the path of persuasion , entreaty and diplomacy.
He noted that employing violence to settle scores had greatly done more harm than good.
