The Niger State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) has warned against violence in the up-coming primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The corps commandant in the state, Aliyu Bature, gave the warning in an interview on Wednesday.
Mr Bature said that sufficient personnel would be deployed to monitor the conduct of the exercise in the state.
“We have deployed a special squad to black spot areas in the metropolis against any form of political violence and thuggery before, during and after the exercise,” he said.
The commandant also called on the youths to shun the spread of false information on social media.
He said that the command was working with other security agencies to ensure a hitch-free party primaries exercise.
“We have mapped out a comprehensive security strategies that would enable the organisers to conduct the exercise in a peaceful political atmosphere without threat to lives and property,” he said.
