Lagos Police Commissioner Imohimi Edgal Wednesday warned members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) that the police was ready to battle any group that was out to disrupt electioneering processes.
Edgal gave the warning following allegations that some politicians were arming NURTW members to cause chaos should their candidates not emerge victorious in next year’s election.
He spoke at a meeting with chairmen of 64 political parties and their candidates as well as other security agencies held at the Police Officers’ Mess Ikeja.
He said: “There is an allegation that people are arming NURTW members to cause problems during the election. I warn that we will meet force with force, fire with fire.”
