Police in Anambra state have begun monitoring and patrol of all Anambra streets and communities.

The State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Echeng Echeng, disclosed this in Awka, saying that the exercise will cover the 181 communities in the state, beginning this morning.

Mr Echeng, in a media briefing where he acquainted journalists on their readiness for the fast approaching November 6,2021 Governorship election in the state said the Inspector General of Police, Baba Alkali Usman, is a very passionate man with psychological attachment to the election, revealed that he had provided all that the command needed for a smooth hitch free election.

While warning all trouble makers to quietly stay away, the Police boss urged the electorate to feel free, come out enmass to cast their ballots, assuring of civility of his men.

According to him, “I assure you of a comprehensive water-tight around the clock security to make sure no breach of security of any kind occures.

“Our deployment is functional, purposeful, security arrangements aimed at enhancing public security and safety are strategic and deliberate before, during and after the election.

“The IGP is very passionate and has psychological attachment to the election. For everything this Command has asked for, he’s giving us even more. We have helicopter for aeriel surveillance, gunboats to patrol waterways, enough vehicles, among others.

“From Friday (29th October, 2021) you will be seeing us on the streets because we intend to dominate the space and the dominance is to reassure the people of the state of their security to exercise their franchise on election day.

“We’re going to be very civil to them but for the trouble makers, very firm and decisive.”
