The FCT Police Command says it has observed with serious concern the flagrant disregard for the law by some individuals and group of persons who lay siege to the Federal Capital City in the form of protests and demonstrations. 

A statement on Tuesday by the spokesman of the Command ASP Anjuguri Manzah said: "These indiscriminate actions which are carried out in disorderly and sometimes riotous manner create unwarranted tension and apprehension among law abiding citizens and in the process obstruct legitimate business activities."
 
He pointed out that‎ the Command is making it clear that it will continue to be professional in discharging its constitutionally assigned roles in accordance with international best practices especially as it relates to the fundamental rights of citizens. 

However, he said the Command will not fold its arms and watch some individuals or group of persons tamper with the existing peaceful atmosphere in the Federal Capital Territory. 

Manzah said: "The Command hereby advises any person or group of persons who wish to embark on any demonstration to notify the Commissioner of Police FCT in writing and secure approval."
