Onyia said the restriction would enable the election to be conducted in an orderly manner.

“There shall be no movement of vehicles on the roads or any form of transportation in the areas affected from midnight of Friday to 6.00 p.m. on Saturday.

“Those on essential duty such as INEC officials, election observers, health workers and other relevant organisations are, however, exempted.

“Enugu people are enjoined to adhere to the directive for a free, fair, credible and peaceful election.

“Security agencies have been briefed and are to ensure enforcement of the order, while all security agents not posted on election duty by their respective agencies are barred from the election venues,” Onyia said.
