The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has dismissed reports that the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was sealed-up as untrue, noting that presence of police officers was for order and peace.
This was disclosed in a press statement issued by DCP Frank MBA, Force Public Relations Officer in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, today.
According to him, “Personnel of the Nigeria Police Force have been deployed to the National Secretariat of the All Progressive Congress, located at Blantyre Crescent, Wuse II, Abuja. The deployment is a proactive move by the Force to maintain peace and ensure there is no breakdown of law and order at the Secretariat.
“The presence of police personnel at the Secretariat is not to seal-up the Complex as has been reported in some quarters but rather to prevent any untoward situation within and around the APC National Secretariat.
He assured members of the APC of their right to access the secretariat, saying, “Members of the APC as well as staff of the Secretariat are therefore at liberty to conduct their legitimate businesses, in and around the Secretariat as always.
