Jun 11, 2024

The Anambra State Police Command has called on the residents of Anambra State to avoid participating in any protests that may threaten public peace and national unity. Commissioner of Police Nnaghe Obono Itam urged the public to dissociate themselves from actions that could infringe on the fundamental rights of others, including the rights to freedom of movement and human dignity.

The Commissioner’s statement comes after a thorough threat analysis conducted by the Command, which highlighted potential disruptions due to a planned protest on June 12, 2024, Democracy Day. The protest, if carried out, is expected to significantly hinder commercial activities and obstruct traffic flow in the state.

While recognizing the rights of individuals and groups to advocate for their interests, the Police Command emphasized the need for such activities to comply with existing laws. To ensure public safety, Police operatives have been deployed to strategic locations across the state. These officers are tasked with maintaining the safety of lives and property, ensuring the free flow of traffic, and preserving a peaceful environment.

Commissioner Itam extended his best wishes to Ndi Anambra for a peaceful Democracy Day celebration and commended their cooperation in promoting peace. He urged residents to remain law-abiding, vigilant, and supportive of the Police and other security agencies. He called for continued partnership and collaboration to combat criminality and ensure public security and safety in Anambra State.

For those needing security services or wishing to report any security-related incidents, the Police Command has provided a contact number: 07039194332 for prompt response.
