The Deputy Inspector General of Police, Operations, Habila Joshak, has announced that the security details of Governor Ayodele Fayose, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Kayode Fayemi and other important personalities in Ekiti will be withdrawn during the governorship election in the State on Saturday.
The Police boss who addressed news men today, Wednesday in Ado-Ekiti, capital of the Sate, said that no party will be allowed to hold any political rally that is not approved by the Police until the election is held.
Habila Joshak said that he will work with one Assistant Inspector General of Police, Mr. H.H. Karma and three other Commissioners of Police: Ali Janga, J.B. Kokumo and G.B. Umar, who would man each of the senatorial districts in the state.
He said that they have contacted security details of Governor Fayose and that of the candidate of Dr. Fayemi as well as other top government officials to report at 6am at the Police headquarters in Ado-Ekiti on Saturday.
“We won’t allow anybody to go to the polling booth with armed men, because it will be a breach of the Electoral Act. We have contacted them and they have to be here before election commences. This election must not be compromised.
“They will be documented and whoever defies this will be sanctioned, because they have been contacted.”
