Commissioner of Police orders Area Commanders, DPOs to secure INEC facilities
Commissioner of Police in charge of Bauchi State Command, [CP] Umar Mamman Sanda, has directed the Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) and their supervisory Area Commanders, to immediately ensure strategic deployment of officers at Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) offices in their respective areas of responsibility (AOR) to provide a conducive atmosphere for a hitch-free political process in the state.
The Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Ahmed Wakil, who disclosed this to newsmen on Sunday in Bauchi said that the deployment is aimed at keeping a beady eye on INEC materials in and around INEC facilities for surveillance operations to checkmate criminal activities to prevent any attempt to undermine security around INEC facilities and to coordinate a timely response to distress calls.
Wakil further disclosed that the CP ordered a total clamp down and prosecution of miscreants found around the INEC facilities. In the same vein, he further warned political thugs across the state to steer clear and turn away from INEC facilities/materials as the command will not hesitate to decisively deal with any erring persons who decide to dare this warning.
I hope Police wont mislead us with one line thinking.
Dont some Inec staff have interest in any thing that can help in election manipulation. Let this commissioner ask his people etc how the sharing is done.
This is not my handwriting. People who rig elections dont hide it..
if he really wants to help..he should start by making sure the people who try to burn the first inec office in Bauchi are arrested and their sponsors exposed. In Nigeria ..this may mean the end of his career.
