Enjoining the citizens to endure any inconveniences arising from the restriction, the IGP noted that it is a part of necessary sacrifices to be made to nurture and sustain democracy in the country.


Warning citizens of Ondo State, the IGP said that anybody caught engaging in the snatching of ballot boxes, vote-buying, vote-selling, hate speeches, and any other act capable of compromising the integrity of the electoral process will be brought to book.
