Re-Run Elections: Enugu State Police Commissioner Describes Polls As Peaceful

….. Appreciates security personnel’s diligence, resilience, and support of the citizenry.

The Enugu State Commissioner of Police, CP Kanayo Uzuegbu has described the rerun elections that took place on February 3, 2024, in Igbo-Eze North/Udenu Federal Constituency and Enugu South 1 State Constituency of Enugu State as generally peaceful.

In a statement on Sunday, 4th January 2024 signed by the Enugu State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, said that this, he notes, is regardless of the eventual suspension of that of Enugu South 1 State Constituency due to the non-availability of INEC’s original results sheets for the voters’ inspection before the commencement of voting.

The CP made this known after leading heads of other security agencies in Enugu State to monitor and supervise the rerun elections in Enugu South 1 State Constituency before it was eventually suspended, and that of Igbo-Eze North/Udenu Federal Constituency, which ran its full course.

He expressed satisfaction with the conduct of the Police and other security personnel involved in the election security management. He, therefore, appreciates their resilience and diligence, which he says made the peaceful and successful conduct of the exercise possible.

The Commissioner also appreciates citizens of the State, particularly the electorate and residents in the areas of the rerun elections, for largely conducting themselves responsibly.
