Barely three days to the governorship election in Anmabra State scheduled for Saturday, November 18th 2017, Delta Sate Police Commissioner, Mr Zanna Ibrahim, said there was need to prevent halt any security breach around the Niger bridge linking Asaba, Delta State to Onitsha in Anambra State.

Mr Ibrahim ordered the restriction of vehicular movements through the Niger Bridge with effect from 12 mid-night, Friday, 17th November, 2017 till after the elections.

In a press release by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Andrew Aniamaka and made available to newsmen in Asaba, Wednesday, the CP notes that only those on official and emergency duties with genuine means of identification would be allowed to pass during the period of the restriction.

While regretting the inconvenience the restriction would cause commuters, especially those traveling to the South-East and South-South States, the Police Boss enjoined 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.
