NAPTIP moves to tackle electoral violence

To ensure peaceful and violence-free elections as provided for in the Violence Against Persons Prohibition, (VAPP), Act 2015, the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, (NAPTIP), has begun mobilization of its personnel to monitor and ensure peaceful polls.

Director General, NAPTIP, professor Fatima Waziri-Azi, made this known while briefing the press on efforts of the agency towards ensuring peaceful polls by tackling electoral violence as stipulated in the VAPP act.

She said pointed out that based on recent electoral violence across the country since the beginning of the present electioneering process especially attacks on the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC), facilities, it has become necessary for NAPTIP to deliberately work with sister law enforcement agencies to implement the Act.
