Ondo 2020: Army, Navy Warn Thugs To Steer Clear Of Poll

Nigerian Army and the Nigerian Navy have expressed readiness to professionally carry out their duties in ensuring a peaceful poll in the forthcoming governorship election in Ondo State.

The officers of the two security agencies on Thursday evening carried out an exercise tagged “Show of Force” in the Ilaje and Ese Odo Local Government Areas of the state.

The exercise which started in Igbokoda in the morning and ended in the evening spanned through Atijere, Abereke, Agadagba, Obolowo, Asere, Arogbo, Dioba among other areas of the state.

Speaking after the exercise, the Commander of 32 Artillery Brigade, Akure, Brig-Gen. Zakari Abubakar, said the aim of the exercise was to signal a warning to hoodlums on the waterways that the security agencies are combat-ready to ensure that the coming election is violence-free.

Abubakar said, “We have gone for ‘Show of Force’. We are telling hoodlums and militants that are on the creek who want to take undue advantage to cause trouble that we are ready.

“The purpose of the exercise is to get prepared for the October 10 governorship election. We want to ensure that the election is free and peaceful and make sure that hoodlums don’t interfere.

“As you are aware, the places visited lead to Delta and Ogun States and they will be coming. But I want to assure you that whenever and wherever they come from, we will give them blocking force.”
