Nigerian Police Sets-up Election Offences Task Team

Nigerian Police is setting up a Special Team to investigate all electoral offences in the forthcoming general elections in the country.


Inspector-General, Suleiman Abba ordered the constitution of the team under the Commissioner of Police, Force Legal Prosecution Department, Nwodibo Ekechukwu.

Nigeria goes to polls on February 14 for presidential and National Assembly elections and on February 28 for the governorship and House of Representatives elections.


Many Nigerians are already expressing fear that the election may lead to violence. Already, supporters of the two major political parties – the ruling Peoples Democratic Party and opposition All Progressives Congress have been accused of physically attacking each other.


Over 800 Nigerians were killed in 2011 after announcing the result of the presidential elections which saw General Buhari losing.


The international community has urged all politicians and political stakeholders to call their supporters to order.
