By Dirisu Yakubu

ABUJA- The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has directed its state executive committee members, leaders and stakeholders to march peacefully along the streets in protest to the police commands in all states of the federation.

The peaceful protest according to the party is to make clear its misgivings at what it labeled “the police brutality” in Ekiti State on Wednesday, which led to the Governor Ayo Fayose allegedly manhandled by the Police.

In a late statement issued the PDP National Organising Secretary, Colonel Austin Akobundu (retd) yesterday, the party tasked all state chapters to deliver a protest letter to the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris through their respective Commissioners of Police.

“The National Working Committee (NWC) has directed that all state chairmen mobilize former NWC Members, Board of Trustees, BoT Members, former Governors, all State Exco Members, Exco members of the party at all levels and stakeholders with our teaming supporters, to embark on peaceful procession to the State Police Command in their respective States to protest the police brutality that happened today (yesterday) in Ekiti State.

“The protest march must begin by 10AM simultaneously across the Nation.

“All State Chapters are to deliver a protest letter to the Inspector General Of Police through the Commissioner of Police,” the statement reads.
