Bauchi State Commissioner of Police, CP Umar Mamman Sanda, has directed the Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) and their supervisory Area Commanders, to immediately ensure strategic deployment of officers at Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) offices in their respective areas of responsibility (AOR) to provide a conducive atmosphere for a hitch-free political process in the state.

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Ahmed Wakil, who disclosed this to newsmen on Sunday in Bauchi said that the deployment is aimed at keeping a beady eye on INEC materials in and around INEC facilities for surveillance operations to checkmate criminal activities to prevent any attempt to undermine security around INEC facilities and to coordinate a timely response to distress calls.

Wakil further disclosed that the CP ordered a total clamp down and prosecution of miscreants found around the INEC facilities. In the same vein, he further warned political thugs across the state to steer clear and turn away from INEC facilities/materials as the command will not hesitate to decisively deal with any erring persons who decide to dare this warning.

Wakil noted that the Command calls on parents, guardians, and leaders wielding various degrees of influence are enjoined to prevail on their wards and proteges against being used as cannon fodders in destroying national critical infrastructure.
