The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has embarked on an election monitoring patrol byo road across Kaduna and Plateau states to assure residents and electorates of their security during and after the elections.
This is in the quest to further assess the policing strategies along the routes from Abuja for safety of road users in the axis, Force spokesman CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi said in a statement on Sunday.
The IGP’s patrol convoy took off on Saturday, 18th March, 2023, from the FCT Abuja and proceeded to cover all the areas along the Abuja – Jere – Kwoi – Kafanchan – Jos – and Kaduna axis.
The IGP also took time to make strategic stops at polling units along the axis covered and interfaced with senior officers of the NPF, the military, paramilitary, and traditional rulers.
Furthermore, the Inspector-General of Police assured citizens that the Police will remain committed to securing the nation for the safety of citizens even after the elections.
He also urged citizens to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities to the police. The patrol continues today, Sunday, as the IGP is expected to return to Abuja later today.
