The Nigeria Police Force has said that the deployment of its personnel, to ensure a peaceful process during Saturday’s governorship election in Bayelsa state, has been yielding positive results.
This was made known by the Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi while speaking on the heels of the recent protest in Bayelsa State, during an interview with the Channels Telivision’s Politics Today.
Adejobi expressed assurance that the DIG in charge of the election in Bayelsa has done something about it.
Adejobi said, “I am sure that the DIG in charge of the election in Bayelsa State has reacted to that.
“There was a protest in Bayelsa, but I don’t know much about it. Every Nigerian read it in the news and the DIG had reacted to that. So there is no cause for alarm. Everybody has the right to protest.
“There are very senior officers on the ground. The senior officers on the ground were able to assess the situation and respond properly. I am sure that they have made the right decision in Bayelsa. I can assure you that our deployments are already paying off.”
Some women had stormed the command headquarters in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, demanding the removal of the Commissioner of Police, Tolani Alausa on Friday.
However, the protesting women who alleged that Alausa was biased, were dispersed by the police.
Reacting to the development, Adejobi noted that there is no cause for alarm about today’s governorship election in Bayelsa State.
