Nigerian Police Denies Banning "Public Protests"

I must confess that with this change thing sweeping through Nigeria,the Nigerian Police seem to have bettered their game..Has anyone noticed that organised crime has somewhat reduced?..Right?

·        No ban on public protest
The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Ibrahim K Idris NPM, mni  wishes to state categorically that at no time did Nigeria Police Force place a ban on peaceful public protest/procession anywhere in Nigeria most particularly Federal Capital Territory.
2.      Peaceful Public protest/procession is an integral part of democratic norms in as much as it conforms with the rule of law and public order.
3.      The Nigeria Police Force recognises the constitutional rights of every law abiding citizen to express his or her view through public protest/procession and other legitimate means.
4.      In order to ensure that public protest/procession is not hijacked by hoodlums and miscreants to unleash mayhem and disturbance of public peace,  persons or group of persons undertaking public protest/procession should endeavour to notify the police to enable the police protect and process the public procession through designated routes and destinations.
5.      However, the Police will not condone any protest/procession on the public highways and roads inhibiting or disallowing public freedom and right of way.
6.      The Inspector General of Police is committed to the principles of democratic policing and adherence to international best practices in public order management.  To this end, State Commissioners of Police and Police Commanders are directed to emplace strategies to protect and facilitate lawful public protest/processions as well as protect other members of the public who are not engaged in any form of public protest/procession.

  3. Fine but the IG should warn his commissioners of state to stop tasking us beyond what we can give, imagine contributing money to pay for fare to Edo state for their election although it was canceled, contributing money to buy fuel for petrol, paying returns to the oga, paying for transfer, footing the bills for a useless lavish life style of a state commissioner, sexual harrassment at it peak, we the lower ranks are really suffering and afraid to speak up to avoid getting punished. Stella please post this, may the IG will see it.

    1. You are right bro, this wicked ogas at the top have turned us to day time robbers meanwhile they dnt get blamed. I dnt mind name calling with evidence just afraid too. Nija citizens please stop blaming the lower ones you interact with, we toil day and night to pay our daily dues to some wick robbers at the top

    2. Please Stella can you do anonymous post for police officers, we don suffer for this work no be small.

    3. sorry. Policemen ib Surulere now no dey let us breathe from harrassment and extortion from the bikemen to even vehicle owners. Okadamen now double their charges bcos they have to remit to Police oo. Please help!

  4. Story for the gods.. let's watch and see

  5. Reduced where Stella? Crime is on the rise and you're talking about 'reduced'. That the media chooses not to report these things doesn't mean it's not happening daily. People are hungry. God help this nation called Nigeria.
