Members of the public who will be attending the Independence Grand Gala at the National Stadium on Sunday, August 6, are being advised that no weapons, including licensed firearms, will be allowed inside the venue.

The police in a release said they are urging licensed firearm holders to make proper arrangements for the storage of their weapons. They are also being reminded that the Stadium Police Station will not be accepting firearms for safekeeping.

Licensed firearm holders are also being warned to resist the temptation of leaving firearms in vehicles. This is a dangerous practice, and based on the circumstances, firearm holders may be charged in the event the weapon is stolen in a motor vehicle.

The general public is also being advised that all patrons are subject to search upon entry, and any item that can be used as a weapon is liable to be seized.
