Elections security: Nigerian Army releases hotlines to public

The Nigerian Army (NA) has approved a list of Hotlines to report any suspicious act of violence by unscrupulous persons during the forthcoming general election.

The Director, Army Public Relations, Brig.-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, made this known in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja.

Nwachukwu said the hotlines were to afford members of the public, the opportunity to support efforts of security agencies in ensuring peaceful elections across the country.

He said the hotlines were also released to report the conduct of troops deployed to provide security during the election.

This, according to him, is part of Nigerian army’s move to support the police, which is the lead security agency, to ensure  successful conduct of free, fair and peaceful elections.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the Nigerian army had earlier produced and circulated Codes of Conduct and Rules of Engagement for Operation Safe Conduct to its formations and Units.

The manual is to provide guidance and ensure that troops operate within the provisions of the law.
