Police Issue Restriction Of Movement Order

The Inspector-General Of Police, Suleiman Abba, has ordered the restriction on vehicular movements from 8a.m to 6p.m on election days.
A statement signed by the Force Public
Relations Officer, Emmanuel Ojukwu, says
persons on essential duties, ambulances
and fire service trucks are, however,
exempted from the restriction of
movement order.
This, according to the Police, is part of
efforts to ensure adequate security in the
forthcoming general elections across the
federation on March 28 and April 11, 2015.

The Police advised travellers and citizens
who intend to use roads on election days
and hours to plan alternative times for
their trips.

While expressing his regrets over the
inconveniences that road users and the
general public might encounter as a result
of this restriction, the IGP appealed for the
understanding and cooperation of the
entire citizenry.

The IGP gave the assurance that adequate
security logistics and manpower have been
strategically deployed to achieve a most
conducive electioneering atmosphere.

The Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman
Abba, has also warned voters not to remain
at the polling centers after casting their
votes on Saturday.

Mr Abba, on Tuesday told a gathering in
Abuja, in very clear terms, that the security
operatives expect everyone to vote and go.

The IGP made the pronouncement during
the Independent Electoral Commission,
INEC stakeholders’ meeting.
