Kwale/Asaba Expressway: Police deploy men to disperse protesters, remove barricades
Following the peaceful protest that was embarked upon earlier today by Youths from Ndokwa East local government area of Delta state over neglect by both Fedearl and State government, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Hafiz Inuwa, briefed newsmen that he had deployed policemen to disperse the angry protesters and remove the barricade they placed on the Kwale-Asaba expressway.
Commissioner Inuwa, who spoke on phone to Vanguard, however, said the people had the rights to express their grievances and protest alleged marginalisation.
“Yes, I have sent directives to the appropriate officers in the area to deploy men to clear the road and it has to be implemented.
“But I am not preventing anybody from expressing his grievances, we are in a democratic society, but they cannot, in so doing, trample upon the rights of other people,” he asserted.
