Don’t Use Inflammatory Language Against Govt – Matawalle Warns Nigerians

The Minister of State for Defence, Bello Matawalle, has issued warning to Nigerians to desist from using inflammatory language against the government.

The statement reads: “Such comments are incitive and destructive and can exacerbate tensions and lead to violence in our beloved nation.
