Nigerian police assure voters of maximum security
Chief Superintendent Yemi Ajayi said the Nigerian police were ready to provide maximum security during Saturday’s polls across the country.
Mr Ajayi told WADR in an interview that the police have "intensified its efforts and stepped up patrols in areas where they recorded some security hitches in last Saturday’s parliamentary elections."
On the eve of the parliamentary elections, a bomb exploded in the capital of the northern Niger state killing at least eight people.
And on Election Day in Maiduguri, capital of Borno state, there was another explosion at a polling station.
But the Nigerian police spokesman says the anti-bomb unit has been directed to increase vigilance and place some flash points under 24-hour surveillance.
He assured Nigerians of their safety and called on them to report to the police any suspicious object seen at polling stations.Tweet
