The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali, has ordered the restriction of vehicular movement in and out of Anambra State from 11:59 PM on Friday, 5th November 2021 to 11:59 PM on Saturday, 6th November, 2021as part of measures aimed at protecting the sanctity of the electoral processes in the Anambra state gubernatorial elections coming up on November 6th, 2021
The IGP noted that the restriction order has become necessary following pointers from the Election Security Threats Assessments conducted by the Force which indicate a high likelihood of infiltration by criminally-minded individuals to Anambra State, before, during, and after the polls.
He enjoined INEC officials, accredited observers and journalists, and other authorized officials to go about their lawful duties as it relates to the elections, provided they observe all relevant rules guiding their deployment including the visible display of their accreditation tags.
The police top brass enjoined citizens, particularly motorists and travelers who may want to use the routes within Anambra State during the period of the restrictions, to seek alternative routes and see the inconveniences as part of sacrifices toward the collective sustenance of our democracy.
