We’ll arrest policemen escorting VIPs on election day –IG


 The acting Inspector-General of Police, Mr Mohammed Adamu, has said no  officer is allowed to escort  any  politician during the  general elections.



Adamu, who spoke at the public presentation of a partnership between some stakeholders in the elections, said ensuring security during the  polls should involve every  participant.



 The partnership  is headed by the Transition Monitoring Group and the Human and Environmental Development Agenda.



Adamu said, “Everyone has a civic responsibility in ensuring peaceful and credible elections. Election materials must be secured. Electoral officials, domestic and foreign observers must be protected.



 “The Independent National Electoral Commission has announced  how  stakeholders should  conduct themselves. On our part, we assure the nation that all electoral materials will be safe and the electorate will be allowed to cast their votes without molestation.



“No police officer is allowed to move around with any VIP on election day.  Anyone who does so in uniform or mufti will be arrested.”
