120 people involved in various electoral offences were arrested by the Nigeria Police Force during the February 23, 2019 Presidential and National Assembly elections across the country.

ACP Frank Mbah, the Force Public Relations Officer, disclosed this on Wednesday in a live radio programme, “Police Diary” monitored in Enugu; noting that 38 various Improvised Explosive Device IED-making materials were equally recovered during the polls.

According to Mba, recovery of those weapons largely helped the police to control the security across the country during the election.

ACP Mbah explained that the recovered IED-making materials were reasons explosions were not experienced anywhere in the South-West, South-South, South-East and North Central parts of Nigeria.

“That massive interception by Delta State Police Command actually help us to nip in the bud, various dangerous things that could have occurred, probably we would have had a lot of problems on our hands during the elections; but thankfully that interception was made,” he said.

While he said that investigation had commenced to unravel the circumstances or individuals behind the development, ACP Mbah assured that the police would ensure that all those who violated the electoral act would be diligently prosecuted.
