The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) said it would investigate its officer purportedly involved in ballot snatching during Saturday’s governorship election at the Amakohia Ikeduru Collation Centre in Imo State.
The Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Muyiwa Adejobi, made this known in a post on his X (formerly Twitter) on Saturday night.
Adejobi stated: “The Nigeria Police Force is aware of the allegation regarding this supposed police officer purportedly involved in ballot snatching at the Amakohia Ikeduru Collation Centre in Imo State.
“We do not take this issue lightly as it bothers on the integrity of the force and the capability of its members to maintain election integrity.
“We therefore assure the public that a thorough investigation will be conducted, and we will update you asap. It requires a thorough investigation. Thanks.”
The police spokesperson, in another post, said: “Don’t let us be quick to jump into a conclusion on this matter at all. Let’s identify him and ask him some questions.
“We urge those that have more info about him to reach out to us, or me personally. If this is true, the NPF won’t take it lightly at all. And we mean it.”
