The National Security Adviser, Major General Babagana Monguno (retd), on Thursday, warned state governors against using thugs to prevent opposition parties from placing their campaign materials in strategic points.
Monguno warned the governors that security agencies would soon take necessary measures against the development if such action continues.
The NSA spoke while featuring at the Ministerial Media Briefing organised by the Presidential Communications Team at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The NSA was reacting to reports of state governors implementing policies that prevented the presence of opposition campaign materials in their states.
Monguno, who said there would be no hiding place for the perpetrators when the law enforcement agencies moved, blamed the action on what he called inferiority complex.
He warned the governors to restrain their thugs, saying President Muhammadu Buhari had given clear directives that the 2023 elections must be free, fair and credible.
He specifically warned the governors to “call their Capo regime to order because when we move, there will be no hiding place.”
