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.

The Commissioner of Police, Abdullahi Chafe, announced the ban at a news conference in Lokoja on Friday.

He said the judgment is slated for delivery on Tuesday next week.

Chafe said that intelligence reports reaching the command revealed 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 break down of law and order would face 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 any body. Police will not waste anytime in dealing with law breakers within the constitutional requirement,” he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    Why the warning before hand? Could it be that it won’t be in Bello’s favor?
