Since the day the headquarter of the Peace Corps of Nigeria (PCN) was officially commissioned, the Nigerian police have laid siege on the the headquarters of the Peace Corps of Nigeria (PCN) office in Abuja for quite some time now. Despite several court judgements. Efforts to get the police to vacate the building have proved abortive, hence, the leader of the ‘Our Mumu Don Do’ movement, (Charly Boy), has joined in the campaign for the police to vacate the Peace Corps building.
Charly Boy, sported shedding tears due to the prevention of the police to let the PCN take possession of their office.
Charly Boy therefore described their action of the police as being injustice and promised to stand against it. “This is our country, we would have no place to call our own or go to, if we allow our system to erode, we won’t allow the IGP or anyone to give the youths reasons to resorting to self help or anarchy, he said.”
Recalled that different court orders given at Federal High Court, Abuja with the attendant letter from the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Ibrahim Malami, asking the police to obey court orders, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Kpotun Idris, has ignored the orders.
The House of Representatives, has since urged the police to comply with court orders and the advice of the AGF on Tuesday, March 6.
The officers of PCN under the leadership of the national commandant, Dr Dickson Akoh, were ushered by some officials of Civil Society Organisations, to take possession of the building but they were resisted by the police from FCT police command.
meanwhile, the Peace Corps Boss, Akoh, said, as peaceful people and law abiding organisation, his men would return home while waiting for the response of the IGP. He added that the office was rented for 3 years with N13.8m annual rent, adding that, the police had already vandalised the premises and looted some valuables.
