The Commissioner of Police in Bayelsa State, Ben Nebolisa Okolo, on Monday met with leaders of the various political parties in the state over peaceful and non-violent conduct of campaigns as preparations for election begin in the state.

The CP said men and officers of the Bayelsa State Police Command will ensure that they are not partisan and biased in their conduct during the campaigns and general elections but will not also condone disorderly conduct from members of the political parties in the state.
