ACT OF LAWLESSNESS

10th June 2010

PRESS RELEASE

ACT OF LAWLESSNESS
We condemn in strong terms the killing of a police officer and the attack on the places of worship by some hoodlums and commercial motorcyclist in the city of Jos. We observed with dismay, that some unpatriotic citizens have made it a habit that at the slightest provocation, they take the laws into their hands thereby distorting the peace of the state.

We want to use this medium to call with a loud voice on all well meaning Nigerians and religious leaders to condemn in totality these act of lawlessness which is directed at uniform personnel, worship centers and business premises.

To these end we call on the police authority to equip their personnel and to beef-up security at areas which have become flash points and susceptible to incessant attacks. Government should brace up to the challenges the ban has thrown up by tackling the unceasing lawlessness that is becoming the order of the day in the city.

The commercial motorcyclists should bear in mind that the law they are flouting and the law enforcement agencies they are confronting today will be their saving grace tomorrow.
Peace is the only alternative to an orderly society.

Programme Coordinator
