There were complaints of inadequate police presence in some polling booths during the last elections leading to rowdiness at some centres.
However, the AIG who is in charge of Training and Development at the Force Headquarters explained that the police authorities were aware of the complaints and assured that they would be addressed in Saturday’s elections.
He disclosed that the police had deployed personnel from states where governorship elections would not be holding to assist officers in some states of the federation.
According to him, as part of the arrangement, he was deployed to supervise election only in Kwara State unlike on March 28 when he was in charge of three states.
