The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Kayode Egbetokun had on Thursday imposed restrictions on movements – from 12:00 am to 6:00 pm – in areas in 26 states of the federation where by-elections and run-off polls are set to be held on Saturday.

Proving clarification, the Kaduna State Police Command, Mansir Hassan, listed the local government areas as Chikun, Igabi, Kachia, Kaduna South, Kagarko, Kudan, and Kauru.
