This is contained in a statement signed by the  Spokesperson of the command, SP Yemisi Opalola, in Osogbo on Wednesday.

”Any officer who flouted this directive will be subjected to disciplinary actions.

“Also, the use of siren, revolving lights and tinted car windows by unauthorised citizens during elections will not be allowed.

“The command also warns other security outfits/organisations that are not constitutionally empowered to participate in the election duty to steer off the electoral process”, she added.
