FCT POLLS: No Movement Between 7am and 4pm on Saturday – Police

The commissioner of Police, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), ​Wilson Inalegwu, has ordered the restriction of vehicular movement in the nation's capital between 7 am and 4 pm on Saturday.

Anjuguri Manzah, FCT command spokesman, said the restriction was to allow for free and fair conduct of the rescheduled chairmanship and councilorship elections.

"This is part of the security measures adopted by the command to ensure safety and security during the elections," Manzah said in a statement.

The statement said the restriction excluded vehicles on essential duty.

Manzah assured FCT residents that the command had strategically deployed personnel and logistics to provide adequate security during the poll.

He enjoined residents to be vigilant and cooperate with the police and other security agencies by reporting suspicious movements and activities.
