The Commanding Officer of the Armoured Car Squadron Unit, Chief Superintendent Hamza Yakubu, stated this on GTV's Current Affairs Programme 'Talking Point.

He said the police will go after anybody who attempts to cause mayhem irrespective of the person's political inclination or social standing.

Chief Superintendent Yakubu said the police have received enough training on the conduct of elections and as such professionalism will be exhibited to prevent anybody or group of persons who try to cause confusion.

He said the police service will deploy personnel to all the polling stations across the country.

The Public Relations Officer of the EC, Christian Owusu Parry, said the Commission believes in the ability of the police to safeguard ballot boxes and ensure a smooth conduct of the polls.

He said the police have always collaborated with the EC and hopes they will have the same collaboration this year.

The National Coordinator of Domestic Election Observers, John Larvi, stressed the need for the police to adopt preventive methods to ensure security before during and after the elections.
