The Nigerian Military has issued a warning regarding the upcoming off-cycle governorship elections in Kogi, Imo, and Bayelsa states, stating that some hoodlums plan to disrupt the Saturday, November 14 polls. According to Major General Edward Buba, the Director of Defence Media Operations, these criminals intend to disguise themselves as legitimate military personnel to carry out their nefarious activities during the elections.
The military has urged citizens to be vigilant and report any suspicious activities or persons to the appropriate authorities. They have also assured the public that measures are being implemented to ensure the safety and security of voters and election officials during the polls.
This development comes amidst heightened tensions and concerns over the conduct of the elections, with reports of violence and intimidation in some areas. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has also expressed worries about the security situation in the affected states and has called on security agencies to ensure a peaceful and credible electoral process.
As election day draws closer, all stakeholders must work together to ensure a peaceful and transparent electoral process reflecting people’s will.
