Police Ban Protests In Kaduna


For fear of hoodlums hijacking any demonstration and subsequently breaching the existing public peace enjoyed by residents in the state after the 2001 sharia crisis, the Kaduna police command has banned all forms of demonstration or protest in the state.

For fear of hoodlums hijacking any demonstration and subsequently breaching the existing public peace enjoyed by residents in the state after the 2001 sharia crisis, the Kaduna police command has banned all forms of demonstration or protest in the state.

The ban order came on the heels of the tension generated this week, in the state, due to the demonstrations carried out by okada riders, over the enforcement of the use of crash helmets and a group, under the auspices of the Islamic Democratic Front, against Israelís offensive on Hamas, in Palestine.

These two demonstrations, the first on Monday, 5 January and the second demonstration the following day, in Zaria and Kaduna metropolis, caused some ripples and fears amongst residents of the state. However, the police have beefed up security in the metropolis.

Meanwhile, the acting Kaduna Commissioner of Police, Isaac Eke, who adressed newsmen today, emphasized that the law banning all forms of demonstrations without police permit is still in force. He warned that any group of persons that contravenes the order would be severely dealt with in line with the provisions of the law.

In an interview with P.M.News, Eke assured members of the public that the police command has put in place tight security measures to forestall any breach of peace, and urged everyone to go about his or her normal business.
