Vehicular Movement Between Delta And Anambra Restricted By Police Ahead of Anambra Poll On Saturday

The Delta command of the Nigeria police has ordered the restriction of vehicular movement between Delta and Anambra through the Niger Bridge, with effect from 12am on Friday. Zanna Ibrahim, the commissioner of police in the state, gave the order in a statement signed by Andrew Aniamaka, the command’s public relations officer.

It read: “Against the backdrop of the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Anambra slated for Saturday, Nov.18, the Commissioner of Police, Delta Command, Mr Zanna Ibrahim has ordered the restriction of vehicular movement. The order restricts movement through the Niger Bridge linking Asaba to Onitsha with effect from 12 midnight, Friday, Nov.17, 2017 till after the election.

The order was borne out of the need to prevent any security breach around the Niger bridge linking Delta to Anambra during the election. Ibrahim, however, said only those on official and emergency duties with genuine means of identification would be allowed passage during the period of the restriction. While regretting the inconveniences the restriction will cause commuters, especially those travelling to the South-East and South-South States, the commissioner of police enjoins them to take alternative routes.

Commuters can also make do with other contingency plans as the restriction order is in the overall interest of public’s well being and safety.
