The Acting Inspector General of Police, Mr Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the vehicular restriction from 6am-6pm on Saturday 16 February during the Presidential election.

The order was contained in a statement by the Force Public Relations officers, ACP Frank Mba.

Mr Adamu explained that the restriction was in furtherance of the overall interest of public well-being, public order, safety and national security.

Acting Inspector General of Police said the restriction would enable the security agencies carryout policing effectively on Saturday, thereby preventing hoodlums and criminally-minded elements from hijacking and disrupting the electoral process.

IGP Adamu advised the citizens to come out en-masse on the day of the election to exercise their franchise peacefully without any fear or intimidation.

He said Police and other security agencies have put in place adequate security measures to protect lives, secure and provide conducive environment for a peaceful and credible election.

IGP warned that the Force would deal decisively with any individual or group that may cause problem during the electoral process.

Mr Mohammed Adamu urged the citizens to steer-clear of vote buying, vote selling, hate speeches, circulating fake news, snatching of ballot boxes and other acts capable of truncating the entire process.
