In Anambra State, every person moving in a vehicle, be it private or commercial, is directed to disembark and hands up while crossing checkpoints.
Anambra State Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr C-Don Adinuba, gave the information in a statement on Tuesday in Awka.
Adinuba explained that the new arrangement was in response to the security challenges in the Southeast geopolitical zone.
“The review has resulted in traffic delays at security checkpoints in different parts of the state.
“The delays have caused much inconvenience to travellers who are sometimes required to disembark from their vehicles for security checks,’’ he stated.
Adinuba noted that the government was aware that a lot of people returned home for Easter and he apologised for the inconvenience being experienced.
“We urge you to continue to cooperate fully with various security officers.
“The ongoing security review is for the public good.’’
