The Deputy Inspector General of Police(DIG) in charge of Operations, Mr. Habilal Joshak, on Wednesday said that security details of important personalities in Ekiti will be withdrawn on Saturday to ensure the credibility of the poll.
He stated this while addressing pressmen in Ado Ekiti where he also disclosed that he would work with one Assistant Inspector General of Police(AIG), Mr. H.H. Karma and three other Commissioners of Police; Ali Janga , J.B. Kokumo and G.B. Umar , who will man each of the senatorial districts in the state.
Joshak said, allowing anybody to go to the polling booth with armed men contradicts the Electoral Act, adding that the police had contacted security details of both Governor Ayodele Fayose and the candidate of the All Progressives Congress(APC), Dr. Kayode Fayemi and other top government officials to report at 6am at the police headquarters in Ado Ekiti on Saturday.
He said, “We have contacted them and they have to be here before election commences. This election must not be compromised. They will be documented and whoever defies this will be sanctioned, because they have been contacted”, he warned.
