The state Commissioner of police, Mr Ari Muhammed Ali, who disclosed this in Asaba assured all residents that the State Police Command was committed to ensuring the security of everyone in the state with the deployment of its officers to all the polling units and some speculated hot spots to maintain peace all through the electioneering process.
