The Ondo State Police Command has deployed 800 police officers to the venue of the Peoples Democratic Party governorship primaries in the state.
The development was revealed by the spokesperson of the command, Tee-Leo Ikoro while speaking with journalists at the venue of the primary election in Akure on Wednesday.
Ikoro in his statement noted that the police officers were sent to the election to prevent the breakdown of law and order.
“We have secured the whole place, as we did during the APC governorship primary election on Monday to ensure that there is no problem throughout the election.”
“Right here, we have about 800 personnel and also have other sister agencies to support in ensuring that the place is fully secured.”
“We are also optimistic that there won’t be any foul play this time around because all politicians are aware that today is for election and not to cause any unwarranted issues.”
“We have also advised the voters to vote and leave the premises and if they have any support to give to their candidate, they can do that after leaving this place,” he said.
