Mohammed Adamu, acting inspector-general of police (IGP), says policemen who move with very important personalities (VIPs) on election day will be arrested.

Speaking at a public presentation of a partnership between some stakeholders in the forthcoming elections, Adamu said all security operatives would wear tags to avoid the presence of fake officers.

The acting IGP reiterated that it is the responsibility of everyone to ensure peaceful and credible elections.

He also stated that efforts have been put in place to curb vote buying, while the ad hoc staff will be monitored to avoid manipulations.

“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,” he said.

“The Independent National Electoral Commission has rolled out the ways stakeholders should conduct themselves. On our part, we assure the nation that all electoral materials will be secured and the electorate will be allowed to cast their votes without monetisation.

“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.”

The partnership comprised the Transition Monitoring Group (TMG), the Human and Environmental Development Agenda (HEDA), the Police Service Commission, Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).
