Nigeria’s Inspector General of Police has ordered restriction of vehicular movement throughout Nigeria on Saturday, as part of safety and security measures for the governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections.

Movement is restricted between 8a.m and 5pm , except in Abuja, the federal capital, where there will be no elections.

In a statement, the police chief said the restriction excludes vehicles on essential duty such as Fire Service, Ambulances and vehicles used by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and law enforcement/security agencies.

The statement signed by police spokesman, Emmanuel Ojukwu said that adequate security logistics and manpower have been strategically deployed to achieve a most conducive electioneering atmosphere.

Similar measures were imposed on 28 March during the presidential election.
