The Kwara Police Command has warned politicians and supporters of political parties in the state against defacement and destruction of opposition parties’ posters and billboards.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Commissioner of Police, Mr Paul Odama, and signed by the Spokesman of the Command, SP Okasanmi Ajayi, in Ilorin.

He cautioned that the defacement and destruction of opposition parties’ posters and billboards across the state unhealthy to democratic growth.

According to Osama, the action, apart from being a criminal offence, is also a violation of the electoral law punishable under the law.

He directed all Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) in the state to intensify patrol to avert repeat of such acts.

He added that the DPOs would be held responsible for dereliction of the directives if such acts persisted in their areas of jurisdiction.

Osama also advised parents and guardians to warn their children and wards against becoming tools in the hands of some mischievous politicians who are hellbent on jeopardising the level playing ground the command has promised to emplace in Kwara.
