The Edo State governorship election, originally scheduled to hold on Saturday, 10 September, was postponed to September 28 after the Department of State Services, DSS and the Nigeria Police Force, NPF said they have intelligence report of threats by insurgents and extremists to attack some states in the country, including Edo during Sallah celebration.
