Anambra guber: Delta commissioner orders restriction of movement across Niger Bridge
The Delta State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Zanna Ibrahim, has ordered restriction of vehicle movements through the River Niger Bridge from 12 midnight of Friday, until after the November 18 governorship election in Anambra State.
Ibrahim said the purpose was to prevent any security breach around the Niger Bridge linking Asaba, Delta State to Onitsha, in Anambra State.
The command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday.
“Only those on official and emergency duties with genuine means of identification will be allowed passage during the period of the restriction order”, he said.
Ibrahim, however, regreted the inconvenience the restriction will cause commuters, especially those traveling to the South-East and South-South States.
The police boss said, “I enjoin them to take alternative routes or make do with other contingency plans as the restriction order is in the overall interest of public well-being and safety.”
