He said some politicians have resorted to issuing threats on the agency for carrying out its responsibility of keeping the state clean and green, noting that such action would not deter it from carrying out its statutory functions.

He said: “Some individuals and groups who have contravened our outdoor branding guidelines are targeting the agency though misinformation, misrepresentation and outright falsehood in order to sow seed of discord and cause disaffection to ultimately undermine the lawful activities of the agency  and incite the public to acts of aggression and violence against us.”
