Supplementary Elections: IGP Deploys 5 DIGs, 3 AIGs And 15 CPs (Full List)

The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu has assured Nigerians that adequate security measures have been put in place to ensure a secure and conducive environment for the elections.

The Presidential and National Assembly Elections is scheduled to hold on Saturday, 23rd February 2019.

In a statement sent to Naija News by the spokesperson of the Nigeria Police, Frank Mba, the IGP called on the citizens to come out en-masse on the day of the election to cast their votes without any fear or apprehension.

Adamu further reassured citizens that security personnel deployed for the elections have been adequately trained and are under strict instruction to abide by the Standard Operational Procedures of the Force and international best practices in the conduct of an election.

He noted that they will remain patriotic, steadfast, professional, neutral and civil, but firm, in their conducts and actions throughout the period and beyond.

IGP Adamu implored the general public not to feel intimidated, but rather should be emboldened, by the presence of security personnel deployed to their areas, to go out and exercise their franchise.

He, however, warned those who may want to undermine the electoral process by engaging in the snatching of ballot boxes, hate speeches and vote trading to desist from such acts or face the full consequences of the law.
