Ahead of this weekend’s Presidential elections in the country, Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba has ordered the restriction of vehicular movement across the federation on election days from 8 am to 5pm.

A statement signed by the Force Public Relations officer, CP Emmanuel Ojukwu reads, “As part of efforts to ensure adequate security in the forthcoming general elections across the Federation on Saturday 28th March, 2015 and 11th April, 2015, the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Suleiman Abba, has ordered the restriction on vehicular movements as follows:

“Saturday 28th March, 2015, 8.00am – 5.00pm only. Saturday 11th April, 2015 8.00am – 5.00pm only”.


“This total restriction of movements order applies to all, except for Ambulances, Fire service trucks and others on essential duties.

“Consequently, travellers and citizens who intend to use roads on these days and hours are advised to plan alternative times for their travelling.

 “While expressing his regrets over the inconveniences that road users and the general public may encounter as a result of this restriction, the IGP appeals for the understanding and cooperation of the entire citizenry, as the restriction is done in the nation’s interest.

 “The IGP assures that adequate security logistics and manpower have been strategically deployed to achieve a most conducive electioneering atmosphere.

 “In this regard, Policemen for election duty have been properly trained, briefed and sensitized on their roles as stipulated in the Electoral Act.

 “They are expected to be professional, non-partisan, civil but firm in their approach and relation to the public.

 “Meanwhile, citizens are enjoined to remain vigilant and report all suspicious movements or dealings to appropriate Police authority.
