The Nigerian Police has reacted to the uproar caused by the clash between the Nigerian Police and the El-Zakzakky Islamic Movement on Tuesday, 30 October 2018. Four hundred (400) members of the sect were arrested at the end of the day and thirty-one (31) bottles of petrol bomb, as well as other dangerous weapons, were confiscated from the group. It was also reported that the Police Patrol car was set ablaze.

In a press release, Jimoh Mohood said,

“IGP condemns the unprovoked attack on Police personnel and the setting ablaze of Police vehicle. They are now in Police Custody and will all be arraigned in Court after an investigation under Terrorism Prevention Amendment Act 2013.” 

The Inspector General of Police has instructed the commissioners of police of different states to be vigilant and clamp down on any activity that will be detrimental to law and order. 

“The Force will not condone lawlessness and disturbance of public peace by any group(s) under any guise that runs contrary to the constitutional provisions and other enabling laws on preservation of law and order and protection of lives and property of all Nigerians. The full weight of the law will be applied on perpetrators of violence and lawlessness that can lead to breach of the peace, and law and order anywhere in the country. Members of the public in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and other contiguous States to the FCT are hereby implored to be vigilant and go about their lawful engagements without fear or apprehension, as the situation has been fully brought under control.”
