The timing of the rallies is wrong, given the challenges the security forces are facing with the Shi’ites in Abuja and Kaduna. The situation could get out of control should the IMN joins the rallies and that’s the fear of the police leadership.

Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector-General of Police has instructed the Commissioners of Police in all 36 states in the country and the Capital Territory, to sustain and keep law and order in their cadres.

The IGP on Sunday summons the CPs to see that the #RevolutionNow protests did not turn into violence across the nation.

According to DCP Frank Mba, the Police Force Public Relations Officer, said, “The IG has directed all the command Commissioners of Police to ensure law and order in their areas of jurisdiction during the protests. How they do, it is up to them.”

According to report gathered from a senior officer said, “The timing of the rallies is wrong, given the challenges the security forces are facing with the Shi’ites in Abuja and Kaduna. The situation could get out of control should the IMN joins the rallies and that’s the fear of the police leadership.”

“Apart from this, the involvement of a politician and former presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, in the civil action sends a wrong signal. The government doesn’t want to take any chance.”
