Ahead of today’s governorship election in Bayelsa State, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office in Yenegoa, the state capital, has been beefed up with security personnel.
At the INEC office on Friday, armoured vehicles and security personnel, both armed and unarmed, were strategically positioned at the entrance of the office.
Many others were waiting to move to their duty posts.
Some of the security agencies represented at the center include the Nigerian Army, Nigeria Police Force, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Federal Road Safety Corps, and Fire Service.
Security patrol vehicles were also seen on major streets within the state capital.
The deployment of ad hoc staff accompanied by security personnel and vehicles for election duties was also ongoing at that time.
