This was contained in a statement signed by the Director of Defence Information (DDI) Major General Chris Olukolade in Abuja.
The statement said that the actions are necessitated by the emerging security threats facing the nation which calls for support and understanding of the populace.
Olukolade further said the security measures will be reviewed as more equipment and additional support are introduced to ease the gridlock. “Members of the public are requested to please bear with this temporary measure, which is in the overall best interest of the public” the statement added.
