The President, Women Arise and Centre for Change, Dr. Joe Okei-Odumakin has charged security agencies to exercise restraint and ensure that no life is wasted in the discharge of their duty during the upcoming Ondo and Edo elections
Odumakin who gave the charge in a statement, Wednesday also commended the United States for placing a ban on election riggers.
The statement read; “It is imperative we warn security agencies to ensure that no life is wasted as EDO state goes to election this weekend and Ondo state in October.
“We cannot forget so soon how innocent souls were wasted during the elections in Kogi. We still carry deep pains in our hearts about the woman who was hacked to death even after the elections in Kogi.
“While we commend the US for placing visa bans on election riggers, we would be glad to see perpetrators of violence during elections in Nigeria tried at the International Criminal Court.
Such a measure will deter our security forces from being used to waste the lives of innocent citizens for electoral manipulation.
“It is important to let all those who will carry guns during election know that their own lives will be on the line for every life wasted.
“We have had enough of beastialities.”
