The Nigeria Police on Tuesday disclosed seizure of about 182 sophisticated arms and 430 ammunitions of various calibre in the last one month.
This follows intensification of surveillance to deal with criminal elements in the society.
The Police also said it will deploy additional personnel across the 28 states where the gubernatorial and house of assembly elections are scheduled to hold.
Although the Police did not state the additional number of officers, but noted that the deployments also involved operational assets.
They include vehicles, non-lethal weapons, personal protective equipment (body armor), and anti-riot equipment among others.
The Police in a statement signed by its spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the deployment was aimed at extending additional human and logistic support to commands and formations across the country for effective election security management.
