The Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba, has ordered increased security around key and vulnerable locations ahead of forthcoming general elections.

A statement from the police headquarters directed that security be stepped up around camps holding displaced people, media houses, offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission, and Service Providers Installations.’

Other locations are banks, hospitals, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) lodges, hotels and government offices, among others.

The police chief said the measure became imperative to ward off any attempt by hoodlums to attack the facilities.

He solicited cooperation from the public in the bid to stamp out crimes in the country, and assured that the police had perfected strategies to guarantee hitch-free elections on March 28 and April 11.
