The Lagos State Police Command has deployed 1,000 officers to complement other security personnel drafted for the Edo State governorship election of Saturday, September 19, 2020.

Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Muyiwa Adejobi, disclosed this in a statement in Lagos, saying the Commissioner of Police (CP), Hakeem Odumosu, admonished the officers to be of good conduct and exhibit high level of professionalism while discharging their duties.

He further restated the Inspector General of Police (IGP’s) commitment to sustain the core values of democracy in the country through free, fair and credible polls.

Odumosu said adequate incentives and welfare package as approved by the IGP had been provided to encourage and boost their morale for the special duty.

He, therefore, urged the officers to avoid any acts capable of denting the image of the force and truncating the peaceful conduct of the election.
