The Police Command in Ebonyi has warned non-state actors and politicians against engaging in acts disrespectful to electoral processes and laws.

The command also urged them to steer clear of all courses of the electoral processes in the forthcoming Governorship and House of Assembly elections in the State.

The command gave the warning in a statement issued to newsmen by it’s Spokesperson, SP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, in Abakaliki on Wednesday.

Onovwakpoyeya added that any organisations or groups in whatever name found flouting the warning would be sanctioned in accordance with the extant laws.
