The Osun State Police Command, on Saturday, said 18 suspects have been apprehended following raid on dark spots across the state.
The command spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola, made this known in a statement obtained in Osogbo.
Opalola said the suspects were undergoing interrogation and advised members of the public to shun all forms of electoral offences, as the command was prepared to deal decisively with anyone caught in such act.
She also enjoined residents to give prompt and useful information that could assist the police to nip in the bud all kinds of crimes and electoral malpractices.
