Assistant Inspector General (AIG) Joseph Mbu has said that vehicular
movement restriction in Lagos State may be extended from 6p.m. to 8p.m.
at the governorship and House of Assembly polls.
Mbu, who is in-charge of Zone 2 comprising Lagos and Ogun States,
told newsmen on Saturday when he visited Akin Orebiyi, the Resident
Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Lagos.
Mbu explained that the extension would be limited to Lagos State,
saying the extension was to facilitate the smooth conduct of the
“Lagos is not like other states; it is a peculiar state. Last time, I
had to extend the restriction time from 6p.m. to 8p.m. It is most
likely that we would have to extend it to 8p.m. today.
“Therefore, those involved should be on the alert so that we don’t
start having crisis. We have to give this election all that it takes to
ensure that it is peaceful,” he said.
Mbu said that the visit was to make the April 11 elections more successful than the March 28 elections.
