"In the course of the hitch-free general election, we had
minimal number of arrest, probably the lowest in the federation which is
because of the security measures we were able to put in place,’’ he said.
According to him, a minor security adjustment has been made
by the command for an improved security ahead of the April 11 polls.
Nwosu said the command had mobilised its combat units to
ensure a hitch-free election on Saturday.
"Our sister agencies are willing to partner with us just
like they did during Presidential and National Assembly elections to ensure a
crime free Governorship House of Assembly elections,’’ he said.
