The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has said the helicopter sighted dropping teargas during last Saturday’s governorship election in Kogi state was deployed for crimes prevention purpose.

Adamu, who said this while briefing journalists after a meeting of Service Chiefs with President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday added that the helicopter which was on patrol had to intervene to stop those fighting and snatching ballot boxes.

He said the police prepared heavily for the elections in Kogi and Bayelsa states because the outcome of its security trend assessment had revealed that there would be violence in the two states. (Daily Trust)
