Ahead of the Saturday Area Council election in Abuja, the FCT Police Command has relaxed the earlier announced restriction of movement in the nation’s capital.

DAILY POST recalls that the command had announced that there would be restriction of movement across the territory from 12am to 4pm on Saturday, February 12 to ensure the security of lives and properties during the election.

However, a fresh statement issued on Friday by the Spokesperson of the Command, Josephine Adeh said the curfew has been relaxed to douse fear of residents being harassed or molested during the exercise.

“Members of the public are hereby advised to go about their normal legitimate business without the fear of harassment or molestation of any kind from any quarters”, the PPRO added.

According to the statement, the FCT Commissioner of Police, Babaji Sunday assured residents of “watertight security before, during and after the election, urging members of the public to come out in their numbers to vote for candidates of their choices.

The Commissioner also called on residents to remain vigilant and report any suspicious or abnormal occurrence to the Police through the following emergency lines: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653 and 08028940883.
