Meanwhile, the CP remains resolute to ensuring the sanctity of the electoral process and as such assures the public that all electoral materials and officials engaged in this election are secured.

This is an appeal from the Commissioner of Police to front runners in this Local Government election to please caution all their supporters and foot soldiers to restrain themselves from causing chaos as such will not be tolerated.

He also warned that no Police aide or security agent will be allowed to escort their principals or any  important personality (VIPs) to polling unit or on any movement while the elections last, noting that any security aid violating this directive will be arrested and made to face the full wrath of the law.
