Police Commissioner Issues Massive Deployment Orders Across Delta in Response to NLC Protest

Posted by

The Commissioner of Police in Delta State, CP Abaniwonda Olufemi, has issued a statewide order for a large-scale deployment of police officers in response to a direction from the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun. This is to guarantee that the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) protest, which is scheduled to take place, is adequately protected.

To prevent the protest from being taken over, this is being done.

On February 27 and 28, there will be a demonstration.

Olufemi ordered the Area Commanders, Tactical Commanders, and DPOs to take precautions to prevent a collapse of law and order during an interactive session.

In order to make sure the protest goes off without a hitch, the CP met with union representatives and other interested parties on February 22. Strategies for a nonviolent demonstration were considered.

Protecting people and their property, including demonstrators, is the first priority of the police, as pointed out by Olufemi.

But he did say that we will not stand for any kind of violent demonstration.

Subversive agents will be sent out by the State Intelligence Department (SID) to keep an eye on things and report back any results, as he ordered.

Staff members have also been recruited from other tactical units, such as Safer Highway, Dragon Patrol, Safe Delta, Raiders Unit, Rapid Response Squad (RRS), Special Anti-Kidnapping and Cyber Crime Squad (SAKCCS), CD-Decoy, CP Monitoring Unit, State Anti-Cult Unit, Crack Squad, X-Squad, and others.

Department of Operations, Area Command, and Division additional personnel were also dispatched.

Therefore, the CP issued a warning to all would-be demonstrators, saying that they will promptly arrest and prosecute anyone found wanting.

He reassures everyone in Delta, whether they are residents or not, that they can go about their lawful business and obligations without worry, because measures have been taken to make sure the demonstration stays peaceful, and no one can be coerced into participating.
