With the Lagos East bye-election barely 24 hours from now, the police have declared restriction of movements in the areas. In a statement issued on Friday by the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the restriction of movement would be between 6 am and 6 pm on Saturday.
He explained that the move is to ensure free, fair and credible poll into the Lagos East Senatorial and Kosofe 11 Constituency. “In a bid to have free, fair and credible bye-elections into the Lagos East Senatorial and Kosofe 11 Constituency, Lagos State House of Assembly seats, the Lagos State Police Command has declared restriction of movement between 6 am and 6 pm on Saturday, 5th December 2020,” the statement partly read.
