Mr Chris Ezike , Edo State Commissioner of Police

Edo State Commissioner of Police Mr Chris Ezike has debunked the claim by the factional People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, that the state command receives N5 million out of N500 million the state government got as security vote monthly.

At a meeting with reporters at the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Forum  in Benin City, Ize-Iyamu said an unnamed Commissioner of Police confided in him that the state command receives N5 million naira as security vote.

Refuting the claim, Ezike, who spoke with reporters yesterday said the police is not partisan and would not stoop to the level portrayed by the candidate.

He added that the police would not like to dabble into such a political matter.
