The Police Command in Borno State says it will not tolerate any form of protest capable of disrupting the “ hard- earned peace in the state ’’ .
DSP Edet Okon, the command spokesman , gave the warning in a statement on Tuesday in Maiduguri .
Okon said that available information indicated that some groups were planning protests against the hike in fuel price , electricity tariff , working conditions of state civil servants , and the N- power programme .
“ In view of the above , the commissioner of Police Borno State , CP Mohammed Ndatsu Aliyu , wishes to state that such protest will not be condoned or by the command as this may sabotage efforts of the Federal and State Governments and that of the security agencies to ensure that the emerging peace and security in the state is sustained .
“ The command is using this opportunity to remind members of the public that there is a ban on public rallies and all forms of a procession in the state , and this ban at the moment still subsists .
