Edo election: IGP orders restriction of vehicular movement

The Inspector General of Police, IGP M.A Adamu, has ordered the restriction of vehicular movement from 11:59PM on Friday 18th September till Saturday 6pm.

The IGP notes that the restriction order is informed by the need to prevent the free flow, circulation and use of illicit arms and hard drugs and checkmate the movement of political thugs and touts and other criminally-minded individuals especially from contiguous States from hijacking and disrupting the electoral processes.

He enjoins citizens to go out en-mass on the day of election and vote, noting that the Police and other security agencies have been sufficiently mobilized to provide a safe, secure and conducive environment for the election.

He regretted any inconveniences the restriction order may cause the citizens and urged the citizens to see the restriction as part of necessary sacrifices towards the enthronement of democracy.

The IGP however warns that the Force will not sit idle and watch citizens who may want to engage in any criminal act, violent and destructive acts, snatching of ballot boxes, vote buying, vote selling, hate speeches, and other acts capable of compromising the electoral processes.
