Poised to maintain law and order around Wednesday’s ruling by the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja, the police have strengthened deployment of officers and warned mischief makers against misinformation and unguarded utterances across the country.
The police also reiterated commitment to safety of lives and property before, during and after the PEPT judgement.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, Abuja, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi stated this in a statement made available to journalists, Tueday.
“The NPF has diligently emplaced all necessary deployments and security measures during this critical period as officers and men are fully prepared to maintain order and enforce laws while respecting the rights and freedoms of all citizens.
“Furthermore, the NPF strongly cautions all individuals, including mischief makers and political gladiators, to be cautious in their actions and statements as the Force will not condone activities capable of inciting violence or causing a descent into anarchy. It is imperative for all citizens to embrace peace and maintain calm, regardless of their political affiliations, to ensure a peaceful and secure environment.
“The Nigeria Police Force is dedicated to its duty of protecting and serving the Nigerian people and is committed to carrying out these roles with professionalism, impartiality, and utmost dedication.
