Armed Forces Remembrance Day Parade: Military closes Fed Sec road

The Defence Head­quarters has advised motorists plying the Federal Secretarial Road, through Eagle Square that there would be temporary closures of the road daily from January 11 – 15, 2017.
A statement by De­fence Spokesman, Rabe Abubakar, said the action became necessary to en­able hitch-free military rehearsals and subsequent event of Armed Forces Re­membrance Day Wreath Laying Ceremony at the National Arcade.
During the period, al­ternative routes would be made available for mo­torists, while diversions would be guided and su­pervised by security and relevant uniformed per­sonnel to avoid logjam and unnecessary obstruc­tion.
The statement regrets the temporary disruption of normal traffic flow on the road, noting that the rehearsals would only take place in the morning hours of the affected days and are billed to last for a short period daily, while calling on the public not to panic on sighting heavy presence of armed per­sonnel.
The Armed Force Re­membrance Day Celebra­tion activities will climax on Sunday, January 15, 2017 where the President and the Commander-in-Chief, MuhammaduBu­hari, will lead other top government functionar­ies, including Chief of De­fence Staff, Service Chiefs and the Inspector General of Police to lay wreaths at the National Arcade, Opposite Eagle Square, Abuja.
