The Nigeria Police Force wishes to implore the General Public and the media to disregard and discountenance a publication in some social media platforms that an Helicopter belonging to the Nigeria Police Force that landed at ST. PAUL PRIMARY SCHOOL, OMUARAN, Kwara State off- loaded cash into a vehicle belonging to Mr. Tunji Ajuloopin, the APC Candidate for the bye-election in EKITI/IREPODUN/ISIN/OKE-ERO Federal Constituency as untrue and mischievous aimed to mislead and misinformed the Public.
The Force categorically wishes to let the public be aware that the Police Helicopter and vehicle in the picture being circulated were not used to convey any Cash and the vehicle does not belong to Mr. Tunji Ajuloopin as claimed in the report or to any other politician.
For avoidance of doubt, Police Helicopters deployed for the Saturday, 17thNovember, 2018 Bye-Election Surveillance patrols and support services to ensure secure environment for the bye-election to fill the vacant Seat in EKITI/IREPODUN/OKE-ERO/ISIN Federal Constituency in Kwara State have commenced flights in and out of Kwara South, Kwara State on Surveillance patrol and the Airlift of Police Officers for the Election.
This is what was captured on camera and mischievously released to the public. To set the record straight once again, there was no cash off-loaded to any vehicle at OMUARAN. The Force sees the report as desperate and deliberate blackmail to misinform the public which should be discouraged by all. Members of the public, most especially Electorates are hereby enjoined to disregard the Publication.
The renewed commitment of the Nigeria Police Force to ensure adequate security for a free, fair and credible election in Country remains unwavering.
