The Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, has deployed aerial surveillance in a bid to ensure a hitch-free election in Lagos State.
The development was disclosed during a recent press conference by the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG), Force Operations, Johnson Kokumo, in Lagos.
While making the disclosure, Kokumo noted that about 27,000 policemen were already in Lagos.
Also, he said all policemen serving in the state had been briefed on what was required of them ahead of the elections.
He assured Lagosians of their safety during and after the elections and added that every crisis-prone area in the metropolis had been mapped.
When asked about a viral video in which some individuals were heard threatening to deal with anyone who voted for a different political party, the DIG said an investigation was underway.
He urged all police officers to uphold the Electoral Act by ensuring that the election was free, fair, and credible in every region of the state.
Kokumo added that a special electoral investigation team had been put in place at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) where all cases and arrests relating to the elections would be attended to immediately.
