Elections 2015: Security expert lauds police over security in Osun
Hussein, a retired police officer and head of a vigilance group, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in an interview in Osogbo that the conduct of the police was unprecedented.
According to him, the Nigeria Police has “really come of age as a desirable institution in a democratic setting”.
“It is very clear that we are developing our institutions as a democratic nation; the police is one of the institutions that have really advanced rapidly with time.
“Obviously, the degree of professional acumen exhibited by the force on Saturday clearly showed that Nigeria can rely on the police as an agent of democracy.
“I urge the Inspector-General of Police to sustain the tempo even after the results of the elections have been declared, so as to avert any form of post-election violence,” he said.
