He added that the restriction order was informed by the need to prevent the free flow, circulation, and use of illicit arms and hard drugs during the election.

“The restriction was also aimed at checking the movement of political thugs and other criminally minded individuals from contiguous states from hijacking and disrupting the electoral processes,” the Force spokesman said.
