The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the restriction of vehicular movement from 11.59 p.m. on Friday, October 9, to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 10 in Ondo State.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, made this known in a press statement on Friday.
According to him, the order is part of efforts by the Force to ensure effective coordination of public order and safety during the gubernatorial election.
The IGP was quoted as calling on residents of the state to go out in their numbers to exercise their franchise.
Adamu also enjoined the residents to bear any inconveniences arising from the restriction order as it is part of necessary sacrifices to nurture and sustain democracy in the country.
He warned that anybody who engages in snatching of ballot boxes, vote-buying, vote-selling, hate speeches, and any other act capable of compromising the integrity of the electoral process would be brought to book.
