No security threat to 2023 General elections, IGP assured

By Gowon Emakpe

Inspector General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has assured that there is no security threat to the 2023 General Elections in the country.

This, he said, stems from the robust security threat analysis carried out using global best standards to ascertain the trend of expectations for the electioneering processes.

Force Public Relation Officer Olumuyiwa Adejobi in a statement on Sunday, quoted Baba as making the disclosure during the United Nations Chiefs of Police Summit UNCOPS in the United States of America and during his meeting with Mr. Todd D. Robinson, Assistant Secretary, Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, U.S. Department of States as part of events rounding up his attendance at the UN summit.

According to him, during the meeting, discussions centered around enhancing support for the NPF training and capacity building programmes particularly the training of tactical units deployed in the North East and other conflict theatres across the country.

The statement reads in part, “Similarly discussed is the achievement of cascading the ongoing election security management training across the six geo-political zones in preparation for the 2023 general elections and support for police recruit training in modern policing themes such as forensic investigations, human relations and cyber security.”

The IGP, similarly emphasized his administration’s focus on improved training and retraining of police officers and men, as well as the sustenance and improvement of cutting-edge technology for better crime prevention, deterrence and apprehension of suspects with concrete, credible and corroborated evidence.
