Ahead of the August 9 gubernatorial election of Osun State, the Acting Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba, has warned troublemakers to steer clear of the state.

Abba gave the warning today while addressing State House journalists after meeting with Vice President Mohammed Namadi Sambo.

The police boss vowed that there would be no chance for any troublemakers to operate in Osun throughout the election period.

He specifically cautioned that those who have no business in the election should not attempt going to the state, saying they would face the full wrath of the law should they prove stubborn.

He said he had adjusted the operational order left by his predecessor, Mohammed Abubakar, on the Osun governorship election.

Abba disclosed that he had ensured that his officers get to Osun State early enough in order to nip in the bud, plans by any politicians to cause violence in the state.

“I went through it (the operational order) quickly and made a number of adjustments which include the fact that we need to be there early enough. So, I adjusted the time that officers were directed to report.

“I have made sure that by Saturday, they are there. And the aim is that if anyone is training anybody to cause violence, we are telling him/her that we would make sure the law takes its course. In fact, my advice is this: if you don’t have any business to do with Osun elections, just don’t go there because the law will catch up with you. This is my advice”, Abba said.
