The Osun State division of the Nigerian Police, on Thursday said it had fortified security in the state to prevent any breakdown of law and order ahead of Friday’s Election Tribunal judgment on Osun 2018 governorship election, Olajide TV reports.
Olajide TV reports that the Police Spokesperson, DSP Folashade Odoro, told newsmen that the Commissioner of Police, Mrs Abiodun Ige, had directed officers to be at alert to forestall any violence that might erupt after the judgment.
“Officers have been placed on red alert and are pro-active to prevent any kind of violence or demonstration in the state.
“We will, however, want to urge people of the state to maintain law and order and go about their lawful businesses without fear,’’ she said.
Olajide TV recalls that the Peoples Democratic Party and its candidate, Ademola Adeleke, had challenged the victory of the All Progressives Congress and its candidate, Gboyega Oyetola, at the Osun 2018 Governorship Election at the election tribunal.
The Osun Election Tribunal, which was moved to Abuja in November 2018, after it was initially inaugurated in Osogbo, has now fixed Friday, March 22, for its judgment on the suit filed by the PDP and its candidate.
