Mass protest

THE Anambra State Police Command has warned members of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) zone ‘B’ not to block the head bridge during their planned mass protest tagged “Operation No movement “aimed at registering their displeasure over the perceived delay in resolving the ongoing strike by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) across institution of learning in the country.

The PPRO of the state command, SP Haruna Mohammed, who disclosed this in a press statement said during the protests, members of NANS has plan to occupy the Head Bridge Onitsha, which is the gateway to the South East and other parts of South-South geopolitical zones thereby, paralyzing vehicular movements and economic activities in the State.

In view of the foregoing, Mohammed said the Command wishes to warn organisers of the protest to stay clear of the Head Bridge Onitsha which is the gate way to the South East. This is to help forestall serious traffic congestion and avoidable hardships to the general Public.

He maintained that, the Command will not hesitate to take all necessary steps to prevent any individual or groups of individuals from disrupting the relative Peace enjoyed in the State which the Command and other law enforcement agencies work assiduously to maintain.

It could be recalled that the Academic Staff Union of Universities embarked on a strike on November 14 over issues including unpaid allowances and poor funding, which Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) joined sue on the same demand.

The union was angry over what it termed government’s refusal to honour agreements it entered into with the union some years past.
