The Anambra State Command of the Nigeria Police said it has deployed operatives to strategic parts of the state to ensure that any attempt to enforce the strike action declared by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) is thwarted.

In a press release by the spokesperson of the state command of Nigeria Police, SP Ikenga Tochukwu stated that the command stands with the federal government which has declared the strike as illegal and will stop at nothing to thwart its enforcement, including any attempt by unscrupulous elements to hijack the enforcement and cause breach of peace.

Ikenga said: “The Federal Government has declared the planned strike by the Nigerian Labour Congress as illegal and premature.

“The Anambra State Police Command reiterates the command’s commitment to enforce the legal recommendations and calls for caution to prevent a breach of public safety and peace.

“Police operatives have been deployed to different strategic areas, and tasked with the responsibility against any miscreants using the opportunity to cause any breach of public safety and peace in the state.

“The Command understands the right of organized labour to engage in such actions to advocate for the interests of all workers but noted the importance of adherence to the existing laws governing such activities.

“To this end, the command encourages the good people of the state to go about their lawful businesses and be law-abiding, vigilant, and security-conscious.”

The command called on residents of the state to use their helplines to report any security-related incident for prompt response.

“The ‘npf rescue me app’ is also available for free download on both Android and Apple IOS, for Android and iPhone users respectively,” the command said.
