The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, on Monday, cautioned politicians and the electorate in Edo and Ondo States against engaging in any act capable of truncating the nations democracy and bringing disrepute to the system.
Adamu made this known while addressing about 79 Police Mobile Force squadron commanders at a meeting in Abuja.
He stated that anyone who attempted to test the will of the security forces would be identified and brought to justice, “regardless of his political leanings.”
The IG reiterated his pledge to ensure a level-playing field for all candidates during the polls, adding that the force would be professional and neutral in discharging its duties.
Adamu, while reviewing the internal security threats and re-evaluating police strategies commended the PMF commanders for their critical roles in tackling the challenges, particularly in the North-East where PMF operatives are fighting alongside the military against the insurgents and bandits.
