Police Warn As NLC, Others Set For Nationwide Protest



The Acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Dr. Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, has expressed deep concern over the impending nationwide protests announced by the Nigerian Labor Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC).

While recognizing the constitutional right to peaceful protest, Egbetokun called on the concerned parties to ensure that the protests take place in peace and are not exploited by the bad guys.

The IGP agreed, acknowledging the unions’ grievances, and stressing the importance of constructive dialogue to resolve issues.

In this regard, he called on the Police Commissioners of the various commands and the Deputy Inspector General of Police to join the NLC and TUC leaders to find common ground around the protests.

Egbetokun, in a statement issued on Tuesday, reiterated the commitment of the Nigerian Police to ensure the safety and security of citizens during the protests.

He stressed that the police will not tolerate any act of sabotage, gangs or extortion that threatens peace and public order.

In light of the potential security challenges that the planned protests could pose, the Iraqi Interim Government has ordered a tightening of the nationwide security strategy.

He urged all police officers to remain vigilant, professional and maintain the highest standards of behaviour.

Furthermore, the IGP urges all stakeholders, including the NLC, TUC, and civil society groups, to choose peaceful dialogue as the most effective method for resolving grievances.

Reassured them of the police’s commitment to maintaining a safe environment conducive to open dialogue and constructive participation.
