Muyiwa Bamidele, Abuja
Nigeria’s Police have banned political, socio-cultural or religious gatherings within and around all airport premises, including tarmacs, lounges and other sensitive security points.
Arising from a strategic security meeting at the Force Headquarters, Abuja, the Police Authorities directed the Airport Command Commissioners of Police and Commissioners of Police in states hosting the airports to ensure that, in line with international best practices, firm security measures are taken to safeguard the airports and their critical infrastructures to prevent a situation where the airports are turned into places of political assemblies.
The Force therefore implores Nigerians to cooperate with the Police in their effort at improving the maintenance of effective safety and security at all the nooks and crannies of the airport.
Many political analysts see the announcement as continuation of police prejudice in the on-going internal crisis rocking the ruling people’s Democratic Party (PDP).
