I wish to warn those with such ill-intentions that our officers are fully equipped and ready to deal with them.Enough officers will be deployed to cover the summit venue and other areas of concern,”he said.

He claimed that both our nation and the rest of the world place a high value on the two events.

Mr. Kajoba further urged the general public and all drivers to be patient and cautious during this time.

He noted that in order to facilitate the smooth movement of VIP vehicles, certain of the highways might briefly be stopped at specific periods.
