However, the command’s Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, clarified that the INEC officials were assigned to another location and not the church’s grounds in a brief statement on his Twitter account on Friday.

The statement read, “The INEC officials were assigned to Imam Thani Street by House No 9A for today’s exercise. They were, however, found within the church premises.

“Residents raised concerns and informed the police. The DPO Ijeshatedo swung into action and brought the INEC officials to the station.
