She said the command had also emplaced a security architecture
to effectively police the territory within the period and beyond.

She said the traffic diversions were as follows, Good luck Ebele Jonathan by Court of Appeal point, behind Court of Appeal, ECOWAS by Women Affairs and Finance.
Adeh said traffic would also be diverted at behind Foreign Affairs, Kur Mohammed by National  Mosque, Benue Plaza, Nitel junction, NNPC Tower and Ceddi Plaza bridge
She said other points of diversion were Gana by Transcorp, DSS Headquarters,
NASS Junction, Bullet and Bayelsa House.
Adeh said the deployment would be characterised by heavy visibility policing at the various traffic control points to aid free flow of traffic, stop and search, as well vehicular and foot patrol.
She said the Commissioner of Police (CP) in charge of the FCT, Mr Babaji Sunday had registered the command’s unflinching commitment to sustain relative peace and tranquility in the territory.
