A statement issued on Sunday by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Ramhan Nansel, said the ban was based on security report.
The statement read: “The Nasarawa state Police Command wishes to inform the general public that all forms of protest have been banned throughout the state.Therefore, all proposed protests under any guise are hereby prohibited.
“The police command took this decision in order to prevent the breakdown of law and order and to sustain the peace currently being enjoyed in the state; as the intelligent report on security can no longer sustain any form of protest in the state.
