Adejobi stated, “The Police wish to reiterate the commitment to ensuring the safety of lives and property before, during, and after the judgment. The NPF has diligently emplaced all necessary deployments and security measures during this critical period as officers and men are fully prepared to maintain order and enforce laws while respecting the rights and freedoms of all citizens.”

The police strongly cautioned all individuals, including politicians and political gladiators, to be mindful of their actions and statements, as the Force will not tolerate activities that could incite violence or lead to anarchy.

Furthermore, the Nigeria Police Force called upon citizens, regardless of their political affiliations, to embrace peace and maintain calm throughout this period of heightened tension.

In a related development, the Registrar of the Court of Appeal, Umar Bangari, announced on Monday that the Tribunal is scheduled to deliver its judgments on the cases challenging the victory of President Bola Tinubu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 25, 2023, poll. Notably, the court stated that the proceedings will be open to live broadcast by interested television stations.

President Tinubu’s election is being contested by Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as well as the Allied Peoples Movement (APM). Atiku, a former Vice President, secured the second position in the fiercely contested election, while Peter Obi, an ex-governor of Anambra State, came third.

The nation awaits the judgment with bated breath as the fate of the 2023 presidential election outcome hangs in the balance, and security remains a paramount concern for all stakeholders.
