Police-combatThe Kogi State Police Command has banned any form of public jubilation or demonstration after the Supreme Court delivers its judgment on the state governorship election petition appeals.

The apex court is set to deliver judgment in the appeals filed by former Governor Idris Wada of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and James Faleke, who is challenging the candidacy of Governor Yahaya Bello of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as substitute candidate of the party, following the death of Prince Abubakar Audu.

The Commissioner of Police, Abdullahi Chafe, who announced the ban at a news conference in Lokoja, the state capital on Friday, said that “intelligence reports” reaching the command revealed that some miscreants were planning to foment trouble if the Supreme Court judgment should go contrary to their expectations.

Mr. Chafe warned that individuals or group of persons who cause break down of law and order would face full wrath of the law.

He urged various political parties to call their members and supporters to order so that peace would reign after the Supreme Court delivers its judgment.

“Kogi State is greater than anybody. Police will not waset anytime in dealing with law breakers within the constitutional requirement”, he said.
