Inspector General of Police, Idris Mohammed has denied reports that the security details attached to the Governor of Anambra state, Willie Obiano were withdrawn.
But he admitted that the governor's aid-de-camp was recalled due to the previous experiences where such cops worked for their principals.
Gov.  Obiano had earlier today, Tuesday, at an event organised by INEC in Awka, said his life was in danger following the withdrawal of his security details.
He said the withdrawal was ominous as it had exposed his life to eminent threat.
But the IGP said it was not the first time such action was being taken, assuring that the decision would not in any way affect the security of the governor.
"We've authorised the withdrawal of the ADC because of previous experiences where in the past ADCs were arrested with vehicles loaded with arms by soldiers.
"Withdrawal of the ADC would not affect his security because we have a total of 26,000 policemen who would be deployed across the local government areas of the state.
"I want to assure him that on Sunday morning, immediately after the election, the ADC would be in his house," he said.
Director General of the governor's reelection campaign organisation, Victor Umeh, described the withdrawal of the governor's ADC as an act of intimidation to humiliate him.
"There is no place in the law where it is stated that the ADC of an incumbent governor who is going into a second term would be withdrawn from him."

He however was emphatic is saying that APGA will surmount all hurdles and come out with victory after the election.
