The Kogi State Police Commissioner, Emmanuel Ojukwu, said on Friday that the military would be available to play its “constitutional role” in providing adequate security in Saturday’s governorship election in the state.
He said while speaking to PREMIUM TIMES on the phone that his command had deployed “enough” police personnel to man all polling units and strategic places to ensure the election went undisrupted on Saturday.
“The military will be there to play its constitutional role,” Mr. Ojuwkwu said.
“We have enough men to man all the polling units and relevant places to ensure law and order on Saturday.”
He also warned trouble makers to stay away on Election Day as the security agencies would not hesitate to bring them to account for their actions in line with the law.
“Politicians must not approach the election as a do-or die-affair,” he said.
“It is expected to play the game according to the rules. Losers always will have another day to win.
“For troublemakers, everyday they say is for the thief, but here, everyday is for law and order.
“The operation is led by the DIG and anybody who commits any offence will be dealt with according to the law.”
