Prior to the Bayelsa state governorship election, the Nigeria Police Force said that the deployment of police personnel had already proven beneficial.
In an appearance with Politics Today on Channels TV, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), made this claim.
He said, “I am sure that the DIG in charge of election in Bayelsa State has reacted to that. There was a protest in Bayelsa, but I don’t know much about it. Every Nigerian read it in the news and the DIG had reacted to that. So there is no cause for alarm. Everybody has the right to protest.
“There are very senior officers on the ground. The senior officers on the ground were able to assess the situation and respond properly. I am sure that they have taken a right decision in Bayelsa. I can assure you that our deployments are already paying off.”
Following the recent demonstration in Bayelsa State, the Force PRO gave a speech.
Some women who invaded the Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, command headquarters on Friday and demanded the resignation of Commissioner of Police Tolani Alausa were driven out by police officers.
Tolani Alausa was accused of bias by the ladies.
Yet, Adejobi stated that there is no reason to be concerned about the Bayelsa State gubernatorial election that is taking place today.
