Mohammed Lafiya New IGP
Mohammed Abubakar Adamu New IGP

Nigeria’s police chief Mohammed Adamu said on Thursday adequate security measures have been put in place to ensure safe, secure and conducive environment for a peaceful and credible election.

In a statement issued in Abuja, Adamu warned those who may want to undermine the electoral process to steer clear of polling stations during the Saturday elections.

He said those who would be engaged in ballot box snatching, hate speeches and vote trading would face the full consequences of the law.

He called on the citizens to come out en-masse on Saturday to cast their votes without any fear or apprehension.

He reassured that security personnel deployed for the elections have been trained and under strict instruction to abide by the standard operational procedures of the force.

Adamu implored the public not to feel intimidated, but should be emboldened by the presence of security personnel deployed to their areas. Enditem
