Kogi State Police Command has banned public jubilation and/or demonstration after the Supreme Court delivers its judgment on the state governorship election petition appeals next Tuesday.
The Commissioner of Police, Malam Abdullahi Chafe, announced the ban at a news conference in Lokoja.
.Chafe said that intelligence reports reaching the command say that some miscreants were planning to foment trouble if the Supreme Court judgment should go contrary to their expectations.
The police commissioner warned that individuals or group of persons who cause breakdown of law and order would face the full wrath of the law.
He urged various political parties to call their members and supporters to order so that peace would reign after the delivery of judgment.
“Kogi State is greater than anybody. Police will not waste any time in dealing with law breakers within the constitutional requirement,” he said.
