Joseph Bakare

The Inspector-General of Police (IG-P), Mr Mohammed Adamu, has directed that restriction be placed on vehicular movement from 6am to 6pm on Saturday.

A statement by the Force Spokesman, ACP Frank Mba, announced this on Thursday in Abuja.

He said that the restriction would assist the security agencies to effectively police the electoral process and prevent criminally-minded elements from disrupting the electoral process.

Mba said the IG urged the citizens to go out en-masse on the day of the election to exercise their franchise without any fear or apprehension.

He said that the force regrets the inconveniences the restriction would cause the citizens.

“The IG-P warns that the force will deal decisively with any individual(s) or group(s) that will want to test our common will in our resolve to ensure a peaceful election.

He enjoined the electorate to shun vote buying, vote selling, hate speeches, fake news, snatching of ballot boxes and other act(s) capable of truncating people’s will.
