Election: Police orders restriction of vehicular movement

The Nigeria Police has placed restrictions on vehicular movement during Saturday’s Presidential election.

The acting Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu who gave the order said it will take effect between 6am – 6pm on Saturday.

Police spokesman, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Frank Mba in a statement on Thursday said the restriction is in the interest of public order, public wellbeing, safety and national security as it relates to the general elections billed to take place on Saturday.

Mba said the police will assist the security agencies in effectively policing the electoral process, thereby preventing hoodlums and criminally-minded elements from hijacking and disrupting the electoral process.

He urged citizens to troupe out en-masse on the day of the election to exercise their franchise without any fear or apprehension as the police and other security agencies have already put in place adequate security measures to ensure a safe, secure and conducive environment for a peaceful and credible election.
