The Police Command, Cross River State has deployed over 2 000 police officers and men for the Senatorial, Northern, and State House of Assembly Bye Elections slated for the December 5th, 2020
While disclosing this to DAILY POST on Thursday, DSP Irene Ugbo, the Police Public Relations Officer, said, “From Cross River State, we have deployed over 2, 000 men and officers for the Bye-election scheduled for December 5th.
“Other officers and men will be deployed from Obudu and other areas to beef up security during the election. We have put some strategies in place to ensure a violence-free, peaceful, and credible election.
“Our officers have been lectured on the rules and regulations governing elections by the Commissioner of Police, Abdulkadir Jimoh, and we promised to abide by that.
“We are on the ground to make sure the election is peaceful and successful; right now, we are at CBN to witness the distribution of election materials.
Our men are ready to provide adequate security to the electoral officers and materials,” the PPRO assured.
The PPRO also said that the State Commissioner of Police had briefed them on the rules and regulations guiding the election, and by the grace of God, all our men and officers deployed to the election ground are going to obey to get credible, successful, and violence-free elections
“About vehicles, we may not have had enough, but we make do with what we have, and for now, there is no challenge. Before now, the political parties participating in the elections had signed a peace accord for now, during, and after the election during the stakeholder’s meeting.
“The parties are aware of the electoral offenses, and I believe they will operate on that limit and the rules guiding the elections. The men and officers know the Policing rules and know bribery is out of it, and any officer caught will face an orderly room trial.
“The Commissioner of Police has adequately briefed us, and it’s no go area; anybody caught will face disciplinary action,” She stated.
