Police expresses dismay over volunteers’ involvement in election matters

Delta State Police Command has expressed dismay with the way and manner majority of the volunteer organizations are meddling into the election/security affairs.

                    

According to the State Police Command, a reference point are the three (3) suspects viz David Ukiri ‘m’, Alfred Joseph ‘m’ and Uvwiejibobor Akpevwe ‘m’ all of Udu in Udu Local Government, arrested with arms, by a detachment of Police officers deployed to CBN to secure electoral materials. 

 

They trio reportedly claimed to be members of vigilante and were detailed by their chairman to escort electoral materials.

 

The Police Authority reiterated that the responsibility of providing security during the 2019 General Election rests on the Police in collaboration with other Security Agencies; namely: Police, Army, Navy, Civil Defence, Federal Road Safety, Immigration, Air Force, and DSS.

 

The Police therefore warned all stakeholders who have or intend to employ the services of private security agents, volunteers, guards and vigilantes for the purpose of securing/escorting electoral materials to desist from doing so, adding that such armed private security personnel in whatever form or guise will be appropriately dealt with.
