Strike: Police Warn Against Breakdown Of Law, Order

By Sunday Etuka, Abuja

Following the indefinite nationwide strike declared by the organised labour, the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), has cautioned against activities that could lead to a breakdown of law and order within the country.

The NPF gave the warning in a statement issued on Monday by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi.

While acknowledging the right of the organized labour to engage in such actions to advocate for the interests of all workers, ACP Adejobi emphasized the importance of adherence to the existing laws governing such activities.

He noted that in the light of the Federal Government’s recent declaration that the planned strike is illegal and premature, the Nigeria Police Force viewed the action as a potential catalyst for increased tension and political instability.

He, therefore, urged the organized labour to proceed with the ongoing deliberations at the Tripartite Committee, which is focused on determining a new minimum wage, and shelve the planned strike as such decision is essential to prevent untold hardships on members of the public and maintain order and stability within the country.

The Force PRO, however, assured the public that ample deployments have been made across the country to ensure that citizens can go about their lawful duties without hindrance.

Therefore, encouraged all members of the public to remain calm and continue with their lawful daily activities, while the organized labour is urged to act responsibly and in accordance with the law, prioritizing dialogue and legal avenues to resolving the existing grievances.
