The Nigeria Police Force on Thursday said that 221 police officers were attached to Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra for his personal and office protection.

Obiano had alleged the withdrawal of his Aide-De-Camp.

A statement by the Force spokesman, CSP Jimoh Moshood, said that the personnel comprised one ADC; one CSO; one Unit Commander from 45 Police Mobile Force and one Administration Officer to administer the Police Personnel.

Others are 43 Personnel of PMF, from 29 PMF and 54 PMF; 62 personnel of PMF from 45 PMF, 46 Personnel of Special Protection Unit and 66 Personnel of Conventional Policemen.

Moshood said that police personnel attached to Obiano were more than the strength of some Police Area Commands in some States of the Country.

“This is done to ensure optimum safety and protection of the Executive Governor of Anambra,” he said.

The spokesman said that the ADC or any other police officer attached to Obiano were not withdrawn.

He explained further that the ADC and Chief Security Officer were called to the Police Command in the state on November 14 to attend a lecture with personnel deployed for the governorship election.

Moshood said that the two security officers returned later after the lecture to their duty posts at the Government House in Awka.

He said that security arrangement currently being implemented by the Force for the Nov. 18 governorship election in the state would not be compromised.

“The Force will also ensure adequate protection of the electorate, INEC Officials, Election Observers/Monitors, Electoral Materials and the general public before, during and after the election,” he said.

The Nigeria Police Force had deployed 26,000 additional policemen for the election.
