As a result of the hotly contested elections which is coming on Saturday, Nigeria has ordered all of its land borders to be shut down.

According to the Nigeria Immigration Service, the directive is intended to guarantee that “elections are free, fair, and devoid of anomalies.”

It has been instructed to border guards to ensure that the order is strictly followed.

Since the end of military rule in 1999, the presidential and parliamentary elections are said to be the most closely contested.

In the lead-up to the elections, the immigration service stated that it had seized 6,000 voters’ cards and other Nigerian identification documents from illegal immigrants.
