128 arrested for election offenses in Nigeria

Nigerian police said Sunday 128 people were arrested for election violations during Saturday’s presidential and national assembly polls.

National police spokesperson Frank Mba said in a statement that the suspects were arrested across the country for various electoral offenses ranging from homicide-related crimes, vote trading, ballot box snatching, impersonation, malicious damage, among others.

He said 38 assorted weapons and a cache of explosives were also recovered during the polls, despite the massive turn-out and the largely orderly conduct of most Nigerians.

The spokesperson added that the country’s police chief had ordered discrete investigation of all security related infractions during the election and ensure that all persons found culpable were brought to book in accordance with the law.

Mba however expressed deep concerns over continuous use of hateful and inflammatory comments capable of inciting Nigerians against one another, especially by politicians and their followers.GNA
