Police warns striking Kogi workers against blocking of roads
The Police in Kogi State said information available to it indicates that labour leaders are planning to block highways leading in and out of the state to advance their labour disputes with state government.
In a statement signed by Ag. Acp Olabisi Kolawole, Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, Abuja, she said “while the Police recognize and respect the constitutional rights of labour force in Kogi, to peaceful assembly and lawful protest in furtherance to their dispute with their employers, the Nigeria Police wish to state categorically that extending their protest to blocking highways/roads in the state, in a manner that will cause major traffic and security threats, is not only overreaching the extension of their grievances but also intolerable.
“As such, the Nigeria Police hereby warns striking workers in Kogi state to desist from hatching such inciting and provoking plans and restrict themselves to due legal and labour procedures that will not in anyway, cause discomfort to innocent citizens.”
She said “failure to adhere strictly to this warning, the Force will mobilize maximally to deal decisively with anyone or group trying to threaten the security or public peace under any guise of protest, and will not hesitate to bring such persons or group to justice.”
