'Our Helicopter In Kwara Was Not Conveying Cash' - Police
Police admitted a helicopter suspected to be trans-loading money into a car at St. Paul Primary School, Omuaran, Kwara State, was owned by the force, but denied the cash allegation.
Some social media reports had alleged that a helicopter belonging to the force landed at St. Paul Primary School, Omuaran, Kwara to off load cash into a vehicle belonging to Tunji Ajuloopin, the APC candidate for the November 17 by-election.
The police spokesperson, acting DCP Jimoh Moshood on Thursday said the helicopters were deployed for surveillance and airlift of officers in the Saturday Ekiti/Irepodun/Oke-Federal Constituency by-election.
He implored the public and the media to disregard and discountenance the publication.
Moshood said that the police helicopter and vehicle in the picture being circulated were not used to convey any cash and the vehicle does not belong to Ajuloopin as claimed.
He emphasized that the helicopters were deployed for surveillance patrols and support services to ensure a secure environment during the polls.
“The renewed commitment of the Nigeria Police Force to ensure adequate security for a free, fair and credible election in the country remains unwavering,” he said.
