The Command’s Spokesman, DSP Nmandi Omoni, made this known in a statement issued in Port Harcourt on Friday.
According to Omoni, the police and sister security agencies were ready to provide adequate security to ensure hitch-free polls.
“The Command has deployed a total of 3,066 personnel to be complemented by other sister security agencies to provide security and maintenance of law and order in the affected LGAs.
“This was done to realise the full objectives of the supplementary election as well as engender a seamless exercise,” he said.
Omoni said that restriction of movement in the affected local government areas would begin at 11:59 a.m. on Friday and end 2 p.m. on Saturday.
“Politicians are barred from going to the polling units with security details. This will not be tolerated.
