The Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone 6, Calabar, Baba Adisa Bolanta will temporarily operate from Port Harcourt in Rivers state in a bid to ensure a hitch free rerun elections in that state.

This follows a directive from the Inspector General, Solomon Arase who also deployed three Commissioners and 6000 conventional policemen and 14 units of the Mobile Police (MOPOL) for the elections.

A statement by Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olabisi Kolawole issued in Abuja says the deployment of some officers for the re-run poll is “In furtherance of strategies designed to prevent electoral violence and thus ensure a smooth and orderly conduct of the Rivers State re-run elections slated for March 19, 2016.”

The statement which says AIG Bolanta is to resume office in Port Harcourt on Monday, March 14, 2016 also added that “the Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of Department of Operations, DIG Sontoye Wakama, has also been directed to proceed to Rivers State immediately to hold meetings with stakeholders and police officers in the state command on the need for peaceful conduct before, during and after the elections.”

AIG Bolanta who supervises the Akwa Ibom, Cross River and Rivers state commands of the force is expected to ensure the killings preceding the elections and the heightened tensions do not degenerate to a breakdown of law and order.

He is expected to return to Calabar as soon as the task is completed.
