IGP Enjoins Decorum While Respecting The Rights Of Nigerians To Hold Peaceful Assembly
The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Suleiman Abba, CFR NPM, NPOM, mni, hereby advices political leaders to take their campaigns to the electorate, rather than engage in disruption of government activities and daily chores of Nigerians engaged in the pursuit of their lawful businesses.
The IGP further urges members of the political class and their followers who have grievances to seek redress in the court of law, rather than disturb the peace of innocent, law abiding citizens.
These admonitions are the fallout of an ugly event today, Wednesday November 19, 2014 when some Politicians led by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, barricaded the Entrance Gates of the Nigeria Police Force Headquarters, Abuja.
The incident though provocative and uncivilised, ended without any confrontation as the Police exhibited maximum restraint in the face of ceaseless provocation by these leaders and their motley crowd.
