Former President, Goodluck Jonathan, yesterday, warned security agencies against extra-judicial killings and called on Nigerian youths to be peaceful and eschew violence all through the period of the general election.

Jonathan gave the advice, yesterday, when youth groups in the Niger Delta led by the President of Ijaw Youth Council, IYC, Pereotubo Oweilaemi paid him a courtesy visit at the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation, GJF, Office in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

He said without peace, there cannot be development in the society.
