Kogi Guber; Police warns trouble makers, urges politicians to play by the rules

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon E. Arase has assured Nigerians, especially indigenes of Kogi State of the readiness of the Nigeria Police Force and other relevant security agencies to provide effective security and ensure a smooth and orderly conduct of the Kogi Gubernatorial Election which comes up on Saturday
The IGP who gave this assurance while addressing Stakeholders and Police officers and men in Lokoja, warned all trouble-makers and anti-social elements to stay away from Kogi State throughout the period of the election as the Police will not hesitate to arrest and prosecute any person, no matter how highly placed in society, who flouts the law or causes a breach of the peace.
While directing the deployment of Marine Police, Anti-Bomb, Counter Terrorism Unit, Police Mobile Force, Force Intelligence Unit and Mounted Troop to complement the conventional Police manpower deployed for the election, the IGP also directed the AIG in charge of the Police Air Wing to deploy the Force’s helicopter for aerial patrol before, during and after the election on Saturday.
To this end, the IGP has directed the Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of  Department of Operations, DIG Sotonye L. Wakama, to relocate to Lokoja, the State capital, so as to ensure adequate Police presence and coordination of all security operations for the election in all polling units and Collation Centres in the State.
Meanwhile, the IGP who has ordered all Police officers assigned to election duties in Kogi State to ensure they work in line with the Police Code of Conduct and international best practices, called on the members of the public particularly politicians, gubernatorial candidates and other relevant stakeholders in the State to cooperate with the Police and other security agencies in the onerous but patriotic task of guaranteeing a hitch-free gubernatorial poll.
