DSS, Police tell INEC to Postpone Edo Gov Election


Two security agencies, the Nigeria Police Force and the Department of State Security, on Wednesday, in Abuja, called on the Independent National Electoral Commission to postpone next Saturday’s governorship election in Edo State.

They said the call was necessitated by the threat of those they referred to as “insurgents” and “extremists” to cause mayhem in the country between September 12 and 13.

Force Public Relations Officer, Mr. Don Awunah and Garba Abdullahi of the DSS, stated this at a short media briefing in Abuja.
