Lagos state command say the restriction of vehicular movement owing to Saturday’s by-election is only limited to the Surulere area of the state where the exercise will take place.


In a statement by the spokesman of the State Police Command Benjamin Hundeyin, the restriction only applies to the Surulere area of the state where the poll is expected to take place and not all parts of the commercial city as speculated in some quarters.


The state command made the state to clarify an earlier order by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Kayode Egbetokun who imposed restrictions on movements from 12:00 midnight to 6:00 in the evening, in the 26 states of the federation where by-elections and run-off polls are set to be held on Saturday.


The Surulere Federal Constituency 1 position became vacant after President Bola Tinubu appointed a former Speaker of the House of Representatives Femi Gbajabiamila, who clinched the post in the 2023 elections as his chief of staff.
