A drive round Osogbo and some other major towns of Osun State revealed the presence of more security operatives than the Presidential and National Assembly elections held three weeks ago.

Heavily armed security personnel were seen on major road junctions in major towns visited by OsunNewsroom crew currently in towns to monitor the elections.

From Osogbo to Ikirun to Iragbiji and some other major towns, stop and search by a combined team of security operatives was a major feature.

Private cars and other utility vehicles were being searched thoroughly all in a bid to ensure that the elections goes on peacefully and fairly.

Even security operatives enrout their place of assignments for the election duty were not spared as they were asked to produce evidence of their posting for such duty else they would be sent back home.

A chat with a policeman (names withheld) by OsunNewsroom revealed that an intelligence report gathered by the Assistant Inspector General of Police, Osun command prompted the heavy mobilization of security operatives to checkmate any lapse.

Voters with their PVCs were allowed to alight from their vehicles and pass through the check points after producing evidences but will have to take a walk to their polling units from that point.
