Army To Deploy Drones During Edo Gov Election

To ensure fair, free and credible governorship election on September 28 in Edo State, the Nigerian Army said it would deploy drones to monitor strategic location during the conduct of the election.

The Commander of 4 Brigade, Nigerian Army, Brigadier-General Raji Benbela, who spoke to journalists in Benin during operation show of force staged by a combined team of security agencies in the state, said the deployment of the drones will support the aerial view of strategic locations across the state and also help to check activities of hoodlums.

He said the show of force was not to intimidate the people but to assure them to come out en masse and vote on Election Day, adding that security agents would be deployed to strategic locations to stop unwanted elements from disrupting the process.


  1. Foolish talk. Drone to kill people. I don't understand. Some idiots just like to talk. How does drone brings out people to vote?. Foolish army spoke person

    1. My dear, go check drones on Google. They are built primarily for Surveillance and Reconnaissance and Secondarily for strike missions. Please stop the insults and obtain knowledge....

  2. I hope they won't initimidate people

  3. They should ensure that the drones don't fall off the sky

  4. Let them work for the people not against the people
