Guber polls: Ballot-Box Snatchers, Others Will be Crushed – IGP


The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has again warned that ballot-box snatchers and other perpetrators of electoral violence will be dealt with ruthlessly in the coming gubernatorial and state House of Assembly elections on Saturday.

He gave the warning at the end of the security meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday.

He announced plans to deploy extra security measures by his men in violence-prone states across the country.

The police boss told State House correspondents that his men had orders to avert the kind of violence that attended the presidential and National Assembly polls in some states a fortnight ago.

He listed Bayelsa, Rivers and a few other states that were worst hit by violence, and warned that the police would not tolerate any form of violence or malpractices on Saturday.
