Delta police boss assures peaceful, credible process


In view of the Presidential/National Assembly elections slated for tomorrow, Saturday, 16th February, 2019 and Governorship/State House of Assembly slated for 2nd of March, 2019 across the country, the Commissioner of Police Delta State, Adeleke Adeyinka, has reiterated his commitment to provide adequate security before, during and after the elections to ensure a free, fair and credible process in the State.

He urged all electorates and INEC officials to go about their civic responsibilities without any fear of intimidation, harassment or embarrassment as trained security personnel with INEC/Agency identification tags have been deployed to all the polling units, collating centres, INEC Offices/flashpoints and other strategic locations in the state.


The police boss reminded Deltans that the restriction on vehicle movement except for persons on essential duties would be strictly enforced as the police will not hesitate to deal decisively with violators.

He noted that Very Important Persons (VIPs) are not permitted to go to polling units with their security aides to cast their votes.

“Violators will face the full wrath of the law”, he said.

The CP advised members of the public to be law-abiding while assuring them that the police in collaboration with other Security Agencies has the capacity of dealing decisively with any issues and criminality.

He maintained that the police would continue to provide a level playing field for all stakeholders.
