Nigeria Police Force has arrested over 700 offenders for violation of electoral laws during the 2023 general elections.
Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba disclosed this on Monday during a meeting with Commissioners of Police from the 36 states of the federation and the FCT, as well as other senior officers.
According to the IGP, the exact figure of those arrested currently stands at 781.

The police chief reported that 578 offenders were arrested for electoral violations related to the Governorship and State Assembly elections, with 304 electoral breaches being recorded.
