More security agents, including members of the anti-bomb squads have been deployed in hotels accommodating heads of state and other invited guests for the inauguration of the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari and the Vice President-elect, Prof Yemi Osinbajo.
SUNDAY PUNCH investigations also showed that the president-elect Buhari had insisted on a low-key ceremony because of the economic challenges the country is grappling with.
It was learnt that the government would not be responsible for accommodation and other expenses of party leaders that would attend the inauguration.
The Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase has directed that critical infrastructures such as filling stations, major hotels, National and State Houses of Assembly, Eagle Square and other public places should be protected ahead of the May 29, 2015 handover to a new administration.
The Media and Publicity Sub-Committee of the Presidential Inauguration Planning Committee and Minister of Culture and Tourism, Chief Edem Duke, said at a news conference on Friday that more than 50 world leaders would attend the inauguration.
