The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has deployed 1,000 policemen to Edo State ahead of the forthcoming Governorship Election in the state.
According to the Lagos Police Command, the commissioner deployed the policement to complement the men of the Inspector General of Police, Muhammed Adamu, who were deployed to the state to provide security.
“The CP warned the officers and men from Lagos State Command to be of good conduct and exhibit professionalism in discharging their duties before and during the election. Odumosu made the call while addressing the men at the parade ground of the Police College in Ikeja,” the Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said on Sunday.
“He reiterated the commitment of the Inspector-General of Police to sustain the core values of democracy in Nigeria via fair, free and credible elections. The CP also dropped the hint on the welfare packages for police personnel detailed for the Edo special duty as approved by the Inspector-General of Police to boost their morale,” he added.
