Parties warned against disrupting government services

20 November 2014, 09:00 Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Suleiman Abba, urged political parties to air their grievances through proper channels instead of disrupting government activities.

According to a statement by Emmanuel Ojukwu, Force Public Relations Officer, Abba urged members of the political class and their followers to seek redress in the court of law, rather than disturb the peace of innocent, law abiding citizens.

Ojukwu's statement comes in the wake of some politicians, led by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, barricading the entrance gates of the Nigeria Police Force Headquarters in Abuja.

This followed anti-President Goodluck Jonathan protests.

“The incident though provocative and uncivilised, ended without any confrontation as the Police exhibited maximum restraint in the face of ceaseless provocation by these leaders and their motley crowd,” the police spokesman said.
