Edgal, while reading the riot act to politicians after his Monday, September 10th, 2018, meeting with his field officers, Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers and Heads of Departments, at his command headquarters, Ikeja, also assured politicians in the state of adequate security at their rallies.
According to the CP “All that is required of politicians is to inform the police ahead of time about any rally, to enable the command provide adequate security to forestall any breech of the peace”.
In a press statement made available to journalist by the image maker of the command, CSP Chike Oti, CP was quoted to have admonished politicians and their supporters to play by the rules.
