FCT-ABUJAThe Commissioner of Police for the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Wilson Inalegwu, has ordered the restriction of vehicular movement in the nation’s capital between 7am and 4pm on Saturday, April 9.
This is contained in a statement by the FCT Police Command spokesman, Anjuguri Manzah, in Abuja on Thursday.
The statement said the restriction was to allow free and fair conduct of the rescheduled FCT Area Council elections.
“This is part of the security measures adopted by the Command to ensure safety and security during the elections”, Mr. Manzah, an assistant superintendent of police, said.
The restriction of movement order, however, excluded vehicles on essential services.
It assured FCT residents that the command had strategically deployed personnel and logistics to provide adequate security during the polls.
The statement further enjoined residents to be vigilant and cooperate with the police and other security agencies by reporting suspicious movements and activities.
NAN reports that the chairmanship and councillorship elections earlier scheduled for March 19 was rescheduled for April 9.
