…warns against unruly acts

 

 

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun has ordered the distribution of additional 220 operational vehicles, including water canons, Armored Personnel Carriers, helmets, bullet proof vests, tear gas canisters etc, to the 3 affected states to intensify security arrangements for the elections.

This was signed by ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi,
Force Public Relations Officer.

This is in preparation for the forthcoming gubernatorial elections in Bayelsa, Imo and Kogi States scheduled for 11th November, 2023 respectively.

Earlier, the IGP had organised trainings for the police officers who are involved in the election security management for the forthcoming elections and sought the approval of the Federal Government for the payment of their allowances and other necessary support to boost the morale of the officers during the operations.

The IGP therefore urged all stakeholders in the 3 states to embrace peace, uphold the sanctity of the rule of law and be law-abiding in their endeavours before, during and after the elections as the Police and other security agencies have been placed on alert to avert any unruly acts capable of disrupting the elections in any of the states.
