The command, however, advised any person or group of persons wishing to embark on any demonstration to notify the commissioner of police in writing and secure approval.

The police officer said the command observed with serious concern flagrant disregard for the law by some individuals and group of persons who lay siege to the federal capital city in the form of protests and demonstrations.
“These indiscriminate actions which are carried out in disorderly and sometimes riotous manner create unwarranted tension and apprehension among law abiding citizens and in the process obstruct legitimate business activities.
