The Lagos State police command has restricted movement in Somolu, Kosofe, Epe, Ikorodu, and Ibeju-Lekki local government areas in Lagos State due to the Lagos-East bye-election which will hold on Saturday.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, said in a tweet that the restriction will be from 6 am to 6 pm.
The tweet read, “Lagos-East senatorial election, no movement between 6 am and 6 pm on Saturday, December 5, 2020. Comply please.”
Candidates from 12 political parties will be contesting in the Lagos East Senatorial by-elections while eight candidates will be contesting the Kosofe Constituency II, Lagos State House of Assembly bye-elections.
The two bye-elections, slated for December 5, became necessary following the demise of the former occupants who were members of APC.
