Kano Police Disperse Groups Protesting Subdisy Removal

Kano State Police Command Tuesday dispersed a protest organised by some groups in order to express their displeasure over the removal of fuel subsidy, according to Daily Trust.

An eyewitness said the protest had begun before the arrival of security operatives.

“The protesters had assembled at the Gidan Murtala very close to Kofar Nassarawa Road, a two-kilometre journey to the Kano Municipal Local Government Council as early as 7 am on Tuesday.

“But when pressmen arrived at the scene, policemen took over the venue where the protest had already been held,” he said.

NLC Begins Protest Tomorrow as Police Call for Decorum

WikkiTimes had earlier reported that Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) vowed to go ahead with its planned protest today as its negotiations with the federal government ended in deadlock.

In response to this, Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, the acting Inspector-General of Police, urged various police commands to ensure peaceful demonstrations across the federation.

However, the Bauchi State Commissioner of Police, Auwal Musa Muhammad, dialogued with the leaders of NLC and the Joint Public Negotiation Council (JPNC) in the state to fine-tune ways to ensure the peaceful conduct of the protest.
