The police command in Adamawa, in conjunction with sister security agencies on Wednesday, renewed their commitment towards ensuring a conducive and enabling environment for the February 25 and March 11 elections.

The command’s spokesman, Suleiman Nguroje, gave the assurance in a statement.

He said police commissioner Afolabi Babatola engaged with various security commanders, made strategic arrangements and took decisions to achieve a credible electoral process in Adamawa.

According to the statement, all local security groups, like hunters, vigilantes and Civilian JTF, are restricted from conducting election activities.

“Restriction of vehicular movement from 0700hrs to 1700hrs of 25th February, 2023, except for those on essential services. No roaming about polling units after voting. All voters are enjoined to go back to their respective homes after casting their votes and await the declaration of election results,” the police statement explained. “No carrying of banners and posters of political parties on election day.”

The police added that “stop and search” would be intensified at border areas, stressing that all police operatives and other law enforcement personnel deployed for the elections were tasked to respect the rule of law.

“The CP enjoins all citizens of the state to cooperate with security personnel and give timely information to the police to ensure successful conduct of the exercise,” said the statement, urging the public to report to the police any form of misconduct via 08035923676, 08032718515 or 08089671313.
