While calling on security agencies to be alive to their responsibilities of protecting lives and property, he said; “we have it on good record that thugs are being recruited and imported from neighbouring Edo State by some political actors to disrupt the process on Saturday.
“The security agencies should take heed of the warning and strive to curtail the situation. I am therefore calling on the security agencies to check the inflow of people into Delta State, especially youths before and during the elections”.
Speaking further, Obi expressed joy over the peaceful atmosphere during the Presidential and National Assembly elections in the State.
He urge Deltans to ensure to conduct themselves in a peaceful manner to enable INEC conduct the elections in a violent free atmosphere, saying there was no need for them go violent and kill themselves.
