September 16, 2016, 4:09 pm

Ahead of the Supreme Court ruling on Kogi state governorship polls, the Kogi State Police Command has banned public jubilation and/or demonstration after the Supreme Court delivers its judgment on the state governorship election petition appeals.

The Commissioner of Police, Malam Abdullahi Chafe, announced the ban at a news conference in Lokoja on Friday. He said the judgment is slated for delivery on Tuesday next week.

Chafe said that intelligence reports reaching the command revealed that some miscreants were planning to foment trouble if the Supreme Court judgment should go contrary to their expectations.

The police commissioner warned that individuals or group of persons who cause break down of law and order would face full wrath of the law.

He urged various political parties to call their members and supporters to order so that peace would reign after the delivery of judgment.

“Kogi State is greater than any body. Police will not waste anytime in dealing with law breakers within the constitutional requirement,” he said.
