A statement signed by Force PRO, Acting DCP Jimoh Moshood said they are  “hereby invited to report themselves to the IGP Monitoring Unit at the Force Headquarters on Monday, October 8, 2018, for investigation”.

The statement reads, “Friday, October 5, 2018, at about 1.30pm, unruly and violent protesters who are members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in their hundreds with thugs and miscreants inside several trucks and vehicles blocked the Shehu Shagari way in front of the Nigeria Police Force, Headquarters creating a gridlock of traffic on the highway and preventing motorists, road users and other members of the public from having access and passage on Shehu Shagari way thereby disturbing public peace and public safety and causing innocent people to scamper for safety.
