Ahead of Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly Elections, the Acting Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has restated his resolve to ensure adequate security to ensure a safe, secure and conducive environment towards a peaceful and credible election.

The IGP, therefore, calls on the citizens to come out en-masse on the day of the election to cast their votes without any fear or apprehension.

In a statement, the IGP also gave the assurance that security personnel deployed for the elections have been sufficiently trained for the exercise.

According to him, the security operatives are under strict instruction to abide by the standard operating procedures of the force and international best practices in the conduct of an election.

“They will remain patriotic, steadfast, professional, neutral and civil, but firm, in their conducts and actions throughout the period and beyond. The general public is therefore implored not to feel intimidated,” the IGP stated.

While calling on the public to cooperate with the security operatives, the IGP warned those planning to disrupt the electoral process by engaging in the snatching of ballot boxes, and other electoral offences to desist from such acts or face the full consequences of the law.
