Police IG Assures On Adequate Security For Ekiti Guber Poll

igp-abubakarThe Inspector-General of Police, IGP, M.D Abubakar has assured the Ekiti State people and other stakeholders of the readiness of the police and other security agencies to provide adequate security for the June 21 governorship election in the state.

The IGP gave the assurance during a brief meeting with the police management team on Friday in Abuja.

A statement issued by the Force Public Relations Officer, Mr. Frank Mba, said the IGP warned those he described as trouble-makers and anti-social elements, to keep off Ekiti State throughout the duration of the election.

According to Mba, the police would not hesitate to arrest and prosecute persons that flout the law or cause a breach of the peace, no matter how highly placed they might be.

“To this end, the IGP has directed the Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of Operations, DIG Michael Zuokumor, to relocate to Ado-Ekiti, the state’s capital, to ensure adequate police presence and coordination of all security operations for the election in all polling units and collation centres in the state.

“The IGP has ordered all police officers and men assigned to election duties in Ekiti State to ensure they work in line with the Police Code of Conduct and international best practices.

“He has called on members of the public particularly politicians, gubernatorial candidates and other relevant stakeholders in Ekiti State to cooperate with the police and other security agencies in the onerous but patriotic task of guaranteeing a hitch-free gubernatorial poll”, the statement added.
