The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has begun the training of policemen across the three Senatorial Districts of Edo, ahead of the Sept.10 governorship election.
Mrs Priscillia Sule, the Public Relations Officer of the commission in the state, said on Wednesday in Benin that the training was organised by the Inter-party Consultative Committee on Election and Security (ICCES).
Sule said the exercise was being carried out in collaboration with the police.
According to her, ten policemen, who are being trained in each of the 18 Local Government Areas of the state, are expected to train others too.
Sule said that the exercise was to ensure safety, free, fair and credible election.
