The Borno State Commissioner of Police, Abdul Umar, says the state command has charged nine suspects who attacked the convoy of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the state.

The CP who disclosed this to newsmen on Thursday said a total of 14 electoral violence offenders were arrested by the command.

Of the 14 suspects, Umar said 12 are supporters of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) while the remaining two are for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

“Even though there was allegation that somebody died, till today we have not seen the corpse,” he said.

He said enough measures had been taken by the police to curtail thuggery in the state.

He commended the state governor, Babagana Umara Zulum for giving expressed order that anybody caught disrupting campaigns, no matter how highly placed, should be taken to court.

The CP also said that the command arrested 119 suspects that perpetrated various offences, including rape and drug abuse.
