Protest: Police Deploy Operatives in Adamawa

Ahead of the planned nationwide protest, the Adamawa State Police Command has deployed a high visibility police patrol to major areas, including government installations, private/public warehouses, hospitals, schools, markets, residential areas, among others, in a bid to reassure citizens of the Command’s commitment towards ensuring their safety during the planned nationwide protests by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) between 27th and 28th February 2024.

The Command has also taken into account that every citizen has constitutional rights to peaceful protest. However, the protesters are strongly warned to ensure all processions are conducted within the context of the law, as the Command will exercise its full legal powers to ensure no one’s rights are violated.

The Commissioner of Police, CP Dankombo Morris, has deployed operational and manpower assets of the Command to adequately ensure a hitch-free conduct of the procession across the state.

The Command, in collaboration with sister security agencies in the state, stated that it will not hesitate to halt any individual or groups that may willfully hide behind these peaceful protests to cause a breakdown of law and order in the state.

Finally, the people of Adamawa State are advised to go about their lawful businesses without any fear of threat or intimidation and report any suspicious characters around their neighborhood to the Police.

The CP urged parents and guardians to caution their children and wards to shun all forms of violence and be law-abiding.
