Police Press Release .
The Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force is investigating comments made on a local talk show wherein a caller allegedly living in the United States of America, openly made terrorist threats against Nigerians living in St. Kitts who may choose to exercise their right to vote in the upcoming democratic elections. The investigation also includes seeking the help of external allies, as the caller intimated that he was from the United States.
All persons are hereby advised that such actions and threats constitute a criminal offense and persons making such statements will be prosecuted. Media houses and hosts should use their best efforts to ensure that their outlets are not used as a conduit to facilitate criminal behaviour. The general public is asked to cease and desist from expressing words or taking actions that amount to incitement to cause injury to persons for politically motivated reasons.
The Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force is prepared to defend all citizens and residents on the day of election. Those who choose to interfere with the democratic process through force or intimidation will be dealt with within the confines of the law.
No citizen or resident, in fact no voter legally exercising his or her right to vote, regardless of place of origin, has anything to fear on election day.
