Police Reassure Lagosians Of Peaceful Election
There is no cause for alarm as Nigerians decide who will be their president for the next four years.
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Zubair Muazu says eligible voters in the state should come out on Saturday to vote in the Presidential and National Assembly election.
In a statement by the PPRO, CSP Chike Oti, just few hours after President Muhammadu Buhari's national broadcast, the CP restated the command’s commitment to a peaceful conduct of the polls.
With the deployment of men and officers to different parts of the state, the CP says eligible voters have no cause to entertain fear or feel intimidated in performing their civic duty.
He assured Lagosians that the command in collaboration with
other sister agencies has put in place all the necessary security measures
to ensure that the exercise is free, fair and credible.
However, voters also need to conduct themselves in a peaceful and orderly manner, he added.
He appealed to the residents to promptly report any distress that can hinder the smooth running of the exercise to the Command through their emergency lines:
Control 1: 08127155132 and 07035068242
Control 2: 08127155150 and 08065154338
Control 3: 08127155071 and 08063299264.
Violence-minded people have also been warned to steer clear from engaging in acts capable of truncating the election, because whoever is caught will face the full weight of the law.
