The governor said that  the SARS  personnel  were assigned  to the APC candidates and Chieftains  for the purpose of snatching election materials and the  intimidation of PDP supporters . 

Speaking  while flagging off the construction of the General Hospital in Omoku , Governor Wike wondered why politicians  who are expected to stay  away from polling  units  will allocated such SARS  personnel to wreak electoral violence .
