Police To Collaborate With INEC In Prosecution Of Electoral Offenders
The Nigerian Police have promised effective collaboration with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the prosecution of 781 electoral offenders apprehended from a total of 489 major electoral infractions recorded across the country during the just concluded 2023 General Elections.
All commands were tasked with submitting casefiles centrally at the electoral offences desk, Office of the Inspector General of Police, Force Headquarters, Abuja, for coordinated processing to the INEC Legal Section.
The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Usman Alkali made this known while in a meeting with strategic police managers of the Nigerian Police Force comprising deputy inspectors-general of police (DIGs) and members of the force management team, assistant inspectors-general of police (AIGs), commissioners of police (CPs) and other tactical commanders at the Force Headquarters, Abuja.
The IGP, therefore, charged the strategic police managers to re-adjust strategies and operations towards ensuring stable post-election security and order and refocus policing attention on routine law enforcement duties.
The Nigerian Police highlighted the need to evaluate the performance of the Force during the 2023 General elections, lessons and strengths, and dissect complex dynamics for subsequent optimal performance.
Mr Alkali seized the opportunity to commend the senior police officers and commanders and other ranks for their resilience, sacrifices, and professionalism during the electioneering process, which enhanced the overall credibility of the elections in line with the police reform initiatives of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He firmly admonished all political actors and their supporters to submit to democratic norms, peaceful means, and legal procedures in advancing their interests as the Police and other security agencies shall not tolerate the resort to incitement or any act designed to threaten the national security
