Police warn protesters against attempt to destroy Jos Appeal Court complex

Chairman of the Police Service Commission (PSC), Dr Solomon Arase on Friday called on its personnel deployed for election monitoring to live above board and to execute their assignment with diligence.

PSC’s personnel deployed for the Nov. 11 off-cycle governorship elections in Kogi, Imo and Bayelsa have arrived and taken positions at their duty posts.

Head of Press and Public Relations at the PSC, Mr Ikechukwu Ani, quoted Arase as saying that it would hold personnel deployed for election monitoring accountable for any deliberate infraction in discharging the duty.

Arase charged deployed personnel to restrict themselves to the approved guidelines of monitoring police conduct and the rules of engagement.

He said the monitoring team would cover the nine Senatorial districts in the three states where the off-cycle governorship elections would hold.
