The Acting Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, says the police have put in place water- tight measures to ensure free and fair November 11th governorship election in Bayelsa, Imo and Kogi.
Egbetokun said this in Abuja at a meeting with strategic police managers and media briefing to highlight policies, breakthroughs and achievements of the Nigeria Police Force in the last five weeks.
He said that the meeting was to avail the participants of the opportunity to enumerate some of operational plans toward policing the off-season governorship election to be held concurrently in the three states.
Egbetokun said that the police deliberately decided to take its annual retreat to one of the states, where the election would hold.
He said that the internal security situation of the country, over the last one month had been relatively calm in spite of the threats of political and socio-economic instability that greeted the removal of fuel subsidy and post-election tribunal judgements across the country.
