Edo State Police Command said over 12,000 security personnel would be deployed for Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly elections.

The elections would be conducted in 192 wards across 18 local government areas.

State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosun, who stated this at a media briefing on Monday said three additional Commissioners of Police would be deployed to be in charge of each senatorial district.

Odumosun said voters would be allowed to be at polling units even after voting but would be made to stay 300 metres away from where actual voting is taking place.
The Edo Police boss warned youths in the state not to allow themselves to be used for any act of violence during the conduct of the election.

He promised to provide level playing field for all political parties and cautioned politicians not to see the election as war.

According to him, “Other sister security agencies will support us. The people should not be afraid of arrest. We are adopting various strategies to ensure peaceful elections.
