Usman Akali Baba, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), has committed to safeguarding the success of Saturday’s election in Anambra.
On Tuesday, November 2, the IGP said he was confident that the Anambra election would be successful during a 2021 Capacity Building Workshop with the theme: Internal security operations in a democratic dispensation, organized by Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG), Zone 2 Command, Onikan, Lagos, Mr. Johnson Babatunde Kokomo.
“People should go out and exercise their franchise,” he added. In Anambra State, we have offered two sorts of security. One, but they are policing the election process to ensure that voters may exercise their right to vote without fear of being harassed.
Two, we are checkmating the activities of criminal elements like the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Eastern Security Network (ESN), and other criminal elements, who don’t want people to exercise their rights.
I advise the citizens to go out and exercise their franchise as adequate security has been provided for them. I am very worried about the situation in Anambra; we are doing our best even though we need improvement”.
