FCT Police Command Orders IMN To Get Clearance Before Procession
The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command has urged members of the Ibrahim El-Zakzaky-led Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) to write and get a clearance from the police before embarking on any procession.
The police also assured FCT residents of tight security, following the proposed procession by the group.
They said security measures had been put in place to protect lives and property of the residents and ensure free flow of vehicular movement in and out of the FCT.
A statement yesterday in Abuja, the nation’s capital, by the command’s spokesman Anjuguri Manzah, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), reads: “Following trending social media messages that the El-Zakzaky-led Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) is planning a major procession into the Federal Capital Territory, the FCT Police Command wishes to reassure the public that it has deployed uniform and plain-clothes police operatives at strategic points to forestall any breakdown of law and order in the FCT…”
