The police in Abuja have told members of the Shiite Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) not to protest in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The FCT Command of the police force gave the warning via a statement released by spokesman, Manzah Anjuguri on Wednesday, December 14.

The statement reads:

“The attention of the FCT Police Command has been drawn to the plan by members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria to carry out mass protest at the Three Arms Zone, Abuja on Wednesday, 14th, December, 2016.”

“The Command wants to state unequivocally that the action of the group is illegal as they have neither written to notify the Command of their planned action nor have they secured any approval from the Commissioner of Police go on with the planned protest.

“It is sequel to the above that FCT Police Command is warning members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria to immediately stay action on their planned protest or be prepared to be dealt with in accordance with the appropriate sections of the law.”
