The Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Commissioner of Police (CP), Muhammad Mustapha, on Thursday warned the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Shiite sect, against its planned protests in the FCT.
He issued this warning during a press briefing at the Police Command in Abuja.
Mustapha stated in the press that: “The sole aim is to foment trouble, threaten the peace of the FCT and above all, intended to cause mayhem of monumental proportion.
“It is pertinent in a little bit of actual sense to state that this group has neither written to inform or notify the FCT Police Command of its intention, nor has it secured any approval from the Commissioner of Police allowing them to do so in the nearest future.
“The Command will not fold its arms by permitting some individuals or group of persons to threaten the existing peaceful atmosphere in FCT under the existing peaceful atmosphere in the FCT, under a guise of expressing alleged grievances in the Capital”.
He said the Command is well prepared and possess the necessary wherewithal to confront any threat to the serene peace in the FCT. Thanks for reading.
