Presidential Tribunal: Police to divert traffic around court area to forestall clash between APC and PDP

The police in  Federal Capital Territory  say they will divert  traffic  from routes leading to the  Court of Appeal  where  the Presidential Election  Petitions Tribunal  will  sit  on Wednesday to  avert a possible clash between  the supporters of the All Progressives Congress and their Peoples Democratic Party counterparts.

The  force  said traffic  would be diverted   from  Goodluck Ebele Way and Shehu Shagari Way in the Maitama area of Abuja to other routes.

Spokesman for the force in the FCT, DSP Anjuguri Manzah, stated these in  a statement on Tuesday.

He  advised   motorists to use alternative routes to their destinations today.

He said, “While apologising for the inconveniences this might cause those who ply the said routes to their respective offices and business points, the command states that the move is part of proactive measure to beef up security at the venue.

“It is to forestall any act that could disrupt the tribunal’s  sitting and result in  a  breakdown of law and order, especially clash between  the supporters of both parties.” PUNCH.
