The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the heavy presence of about 30,000 policemen in Ekiti state as seige.

The PDP is also accusing the Federal Government of undermining the office of the state governor and has vowed to ensure that votes.

The National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus stated that the party will ensure that there will be no attempt of rigging during the election which is slated to hold on Saturday.

But the Police has said that the number of personnel deployed to ensure adequate security and avoid a break down of law and order.

The spokesman of the force, Jimoh Moshood on Monday explained that “Ekiti is a flashpoint when it comes to politicking, you can remember what happened in the second republic, we don’t want a repeat of that.

“When the election is free and fair and election result is being announced, you still see people that want to disrupt the peace of other Nigerians

“It is an adequate figure to ensure that everybody that has one business or the other that is authorised to play there role during the elections.”

He further noted that the action was also prompted by ‘inciting’ statements by political leaders in Ekiti State.
