Nigeria’s capital Abuja and the surrounding Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has become the latest state to ban protests against the new police unit created to replace the dreadful Special Anti-Robbery Squad known as Sars.
The FCT security committee said protesters had been violating Covid-19 safety measures, including physical distancing and the use of facial masks.
“The committee directs that due to the dangers posed by Covid-19, all street demonstrations, protests and processions will not be allowed anywhere within the FCT,” a statement said”.
