Acting inspector general of police, Mohammed Adamu, says that any police officer who accompany any politician during the polls will be arrested.
Adamu speaking at a public presentation of partnership with the stakeholders in elections in Abuja explains that the proposed withdrawal will make more police officers available for posting during the polls.
