The Police Command in Ebonyi says it embarked on raiding blackspots in the state as part of its efforts to tackle related electoral violence during the general polls.
Mr Falaye Olaleye, Commissioner for Police in the state, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Abakaliki that despite the regular deployment of personnel, the command has begun patrols across communities.
He assured maximum security for the citizens and urged them to come out to exercise their franchise.
The Commissioner warned non-members of the security agencies to stay off the polling units or election processes.
“For you, trouble makers, the long arm will catch up with you,” he warned.
