The attention of the Imo State Police Command has been drawn to unfounded rumors being circulated as the reason for the declaration of the last Imo North Senatorial election inconclusive.
The State Police Command wishes to inform the general public that there were minor skirmishes associated with overzealous party supporters in some areas.
The election was peaceful and well coordinated by the highly proactive and tireless Commissioner of Police, Imo State, CP Taiwo Lakanu. The Deputy Inspector-General of Police, DIG Joshak Habila incharge Force Operations Department and his team from Force Headquarters, Abuja were also on ground to supervise the peaceful process of the election.
The DIG Operations and his team in company of the Commissioner of Police, Imo State patrolled the six Local Government Areas of Imo North Senatorial district day and night. High presence of Police personnel drawn from Imo State Command and other states dominated the entire area and ensured that there was no loss of life and destruction of property.
The State Police Command therefore warns any attempt by any group to undermine the peaceful process of the election and engage in Acts capable of truncating the hard earned peace and security of the State will be met with stiff resistance. Aggrieved candidates are advised to channel their grievances through the appropriate authorities as prescribed by the Electoral Act.
