Police urge peaceful conduct during planned protest in Taraba


The Taraba State Police Command has called for caution and peaceful conduct when the nationwide protest organised by the Nigeria Labour Congress between February 27th and 28th commences.

In a statement on Tuesday, the Commissioner of Police, David Iloyanomon, said the Command has initiated a robust security measure by deploying high-visibility police patrols to key areas, including government facilities, warehouses, hospitals, schools, markets, and residential zones.

The deployment, according to him, aims to reassure citizens of the Command’s unwavering commitment to ensuring their safety amid the planned protests.

 While recognizing the constitutional right of citizens to engage in peaceful protests, the Command emphasized the importance of adherence to the law throughout the processions.

CP Iloyanomon stressed that the Command will enforce legal measures to prevent any infringement of individuals’ rights.

He said operational and manpower resources have been strategically deployed across the state to facilitate the smooth and orderly conduct of the protests.

The Command, in collaboration with sister security agencies, as stated by the commissioner, remains vigilant to deter any attempt by individuals or groups to exploit the protests for unlawful activities.

He also warned against the involvement of miscreants in the demonstrations and assured of swift intervention to maintain law and order.

He urged the public to report any suspicious activities to the police for prompt action.

He appealed to parents and guardians to counsel their children against involvement in violence and to uphold the principles of lawfulness, adding that the Command remains committed to ensuring the safety and security of all citizens during the protest.
