The National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was condoned by men of the Nigeria Police to prevent a breakdown of law and order.
This was disclosed in a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba.
According to the police spokesperson, the deployment was to maintain peace at the Secretariat.
Mba said: “Personnel of the Nigeria Police Force have been deployed to the National Secretariat of the All Progressive Congress, located at Blantyre Crescent, Wuse II, Abuja. The deployment is a proactive move by the Force to maintain peace and ensure there is no breakdown of law and order at the Secretariat.
“The presence of police personnel at the Secretariat is not to seal-up the Complex as has been reported in some quarters but rather to prevent any untoward situation within and around the APC National Secretariat.
”Members of the APC as well staff of the Secretariat are therefore at liberty to conduct their legitimate businesses, in and around the Secretariat as always.”
