The Lagos State Police Command has ordered the restriction of movement between 6 am and 6 pm on Saturday, December 5, 2020, ahead of the bye-elections of the Lagos East Senatorial and Kosofe 11 Constituency.
The State Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, made the declaration on Thursday during the deliberation on strategies put in place by the election monitoring officers deployed from the Force Headquarters in Abuja.
Odumosu also reiterated that there would not be vehicular and pedestrian movement in and out of the affected local government areas during the elections.
However, people on election duties, essential services and accredited domestic and foreign election observers are allowed to move about.
The affected local government areas for the two legislative seats include Epe, Ibeju Lekki, Kosofe and Somolu.
The Police Commissioner also warned police aides or security agents not to escort their principals or any VIPs to polling units.
Odumosu warned that security aides found violating the order will be arrested and made to face the law’s full weight.
