    Edo guber poll: Army to deploy 1,900 personnel, 6 drones, 6 gunboats



    The Nigerian Army is planning to deploy 1,900 personnel, 6 drones and 6 gunboats ahead of the Edo governorship poll slated to hold Wednesday September 28.
    Brigadier-general Benbela Raji, commander, 4 brigade of the Nigerian Army dropped this hint during a press conference with journalists, after a combined meeting with the Independent National Electoral Commission officials and other security agencies in Benin, Edo state.

    His words: “The military personnel would not be found at either the voting or collation centers, but would cordon off adjoining routes to the polling units to ensure that untoward elements, criminals or people who want to cause confusion are not allowed into those areas primarily”.


    According to him, “the Nigerian Army is there to play a supportive role to the security agencies. Should there be issues or security challenges beyond the control of the security agencies, the military will, of course, be activated to take care of such situations‎”‎
