Hardship: ‘FCT command not aware of NLC mass protest’ – Police

Published

The Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Police command has said it is not aware of the planned nationwide protest by the organised labour.

Pmnews.ng reports that the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and the Trade Union Congress, TUC, had fixed February 27 and 28 for mass protest across the country over the worsening economic hardship.

Our correspondent gathered that the organised Labour on Monday began mobilizing its members across the country for the nationwide protest.

The protest, according to labour, became necessary following the cost of living crisis in the country, particularly among the civil servants.

Concerned over the security situation in the nation’s capital, the FCT Police Public Relations Officer, SP Josephine Adeh told Pmnews.ng that operatives of the command would be on ground during the protest to forestall a breakdown of law.

She, however, said the command has not been informed of any planned protest in the territory.

The PPRO said, “I wish to note that the FCT Police Command isn’t aware of any intending protest.

“However measures will be emplaced to ensure that hoodlums do not take advantage of any activities of the NLC to disrupt the peace in the FCT if the protest does occur”.
