When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Magaji Musa Majia confirmed deployment of police to the assembly.

He said, “We deployed our men to the Assembly to ensure that nobody break law and order.

“We need peace in the state and therefore we will not allow anybody to temper with existing peace and harmony being enjoyed by the people in the state.”
