National Union of Textile, Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria, NUTGTWN, has raised alarm over perceived increasing partisanship of the Nigerian Police in dealing with security of Nigerian citizens and stakeholders as well as enduring their freedom and liberties.

In a statement by its General Secretary and a Vice President of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Mr. Issa Aremu, NUTGTWN, Tuesday, called on the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Dahiru Abubakar, to urgently call to order his state commissioners as well as the Divisional Police Officers , DPOs, throughout the country to obey the police code of conduct and discharge their responsibility to all stakeholders in the Nigerian project with fairness and justice.

The union said it is greatly concerned with reports of how police halted and even tear-gassed peaceful protest of the striking lecturers of the universities under the auspices of Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, while the same police supervised anti-ASUU protests.

According to the statement “The real acid test for the police lies in its impartiality and fairness in handing the security of citizens and stakeholders of this great country as well as enduring their freedom and liberties.

“Nigerians are alarmed how police halted and even tear-gassed peaceful protest of the striking lecturers of the universities under the auspices of ASUU while the same police supervised anti-ASUU protests.” [Vanguard]
