Ogun LG poll: Police deploy tactical teams


The Ogun state police command has deployed tactical teams including SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics), Anti-Kidnapping, Anti-Cultism as well as PMF, to every nook and cranny of the state to ensure hitch-free election on Saturday July 24 local government election in Ogun State.

In a statement on Thursday by Abimbola Oyeyemi, its spokesman, the command said it would be working in collaboration with other sister security agencies to ensure free, fair and credible elections.

It said meetings have also been held at various levels with the contesting political parties and their candidates, who have been warned to eschew violence before, during and after the poll.

It said further that all Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers have been directed to be on the alert in order to nip in the bud any violent act that may want to occur within their area of responsibility.

The Commissioner of Police, Edward Awolowo Ajogun, has therefore appealed to party leaders to advise their supporters to conduct themselves in a peaceful manner, warning that anyone caught trying to disrupt the smooth conduct of the election would be made to feel the full weight of the law.
