Nigeria: Supplementary Elections - Police Restrict Movement in Parts of Abuja

The FCT Police Command on Friday announced restriction of vehicular movement in parts of Abuja where supplementary elections would be held for inconclusive area council elections.

Bwari, Kuje and Kwali were amongst the affected councils. A rerun had been scheduled for March 23.

Accordingly, there will be the restriction of vehicular movement in all the wards affected in Bwari, Kuje and Kwali Area Council, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Furthermore, ambulances, fire service trucks and others on essential duties will be exempted from this enforcement due to the sensitive nature of their services to the public.
