Imo APC guber primaries: Election duty CP takes over, pledges neutrality

Janga was received by Galadanchi at the headquarters of the Imo state police command on Monday.

Galadanchi, who spoke to newwsmen while handing over to his colleague, said that the change was necessitated by the desire of the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris Kpotum, to ensure that there was transparency in the whole process.

According to him, since there were complaints from some of the dramatis personae that he was not neutral in the election, the IGP had to send Janga to Imo purely for election duties.

He pledged to assist the new CP to ensure a peaceful exercise.

Janga, who spoke to newsmen after receiving operational orders and telephone numbers of officers in the comand from Galadanchi, said that it was not the first time that the IGP was deploying CPs for election duties, adding that he had just finished a similar tour of duty at Osun state where he provided security for the election.

He said that he was in Imo state for the APC primaries alone, adding that he will go back to his station as soon as the exercise was concluded.

He assured that there would be no incident of ballot snatching or violence of any sort and assured the residents yp go about their duties without any fear.
