Security Agents Place Abuja on Lock Down as Jonathan Declares for President
As President Goodluck Jonathan prepares to declare his intention to seek reelection in the 2015 general elections, the city of Abuja have been locked down by the Nigerian Police, the President’s Guards Bridgade, State Security Services and other security organisations of the country.
Men of the Guards Brigade, Nigerian Army as well as other security agents have been deployed in strategic locations in the city to maintain foolproof security.
Consequently, the police has advised members of the public “to use alternative routes, as vehicular traffic will be diverted from most of the roads leading in and out of Eagle Square Central Business District, Abuja between 0500am and 0800pm of Tuesday, November 11, 2014.”
Spokesman of the Force, Emmanuel Ojukwu said the police regret any inconvenience the diversion of vehicular movements within the area may cause members of the public, saying it was one of the proactive security measures put in place to avoid break down of law and order in the area and Abuja at large.
Slated to commence by 10a.m, the event would be witnessed by the president’s ardent supporters as well as top hierarchy of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, leadership and members of the National Assembly and other top government officials.
Jonathan had on Thursday, October 23 after a meeting with PDP leaders at the Presidential Villa, set up a 37-man Presidential declaration committee headed by former Minister of Defence, Bello Haliru, to make adequate arrangement for tomorrow’s event.
