The Nigeria Police Force, NPF, have warned supporters of all political parties not to kill themselves because of any politician over the March 18 governorship and houses of assembly polls.
The call was made by the Deputy Inspector General of Police North-West, Hafiz Inuwa.
Inuwa made the warning while addressing party supporters at the signing of the peace accord, held at the command’s headquarters in Dutse, Jigawa State.
He urged the gubernatorial candidates to honor the peace accord for the peaceful conduct of the election.
The DIG, however, advised the candidates to advise their supporters not to take politics as do-or-die affairs.
According to him “let me tell you all these politicians are eating together, traveling, doing business together they interact so don’t kill yourselves because of them.”
He said police and other security agencies were working hard to create an enabling environment to ensure citizens were not disenfranchised.
DIG Inuwa noted that police will deal with anybody sabotaging the efforts of conducting free and fair elections.
“We belong to you all who respect the law of the land,” DIG stated.
