Inspector-General of Police, IGP Suleiman Abba, has re-affirmed the commitment of the Nigeria Police Force to ensure hitch free gubernatorial and State House of Assembly polls this Saturday, April 11. He warned all trouble makers that may attempt to foment trouble before, during and after the elections to desist from such or face the unpleasant consequences.

“Stern measures have also been mapped out to stop trouble makers in their tracks, as acts of impunity will not be tolerated,” Force Public Relations Officer, Ag. CP Emmanuel C. S. Ojukwu, said in a statement yesterday in Abuja.

He said that the Police High Command has further identified flash points in some geopolitical zones, and has devised strategies to address all issues of safety and security as concerns the election.

“Furthermore, the IGP states that the Force will continue to encourage a level playing ground to all. He advised Nigerians to vote and maintain tranquility for the smooth running of the election.  He equally advised party leaders to implore their supporters to shun any act of violence/thuggery, as the full weight of the law will rest on trouble makers,” Ojukwu further stated.
