Politics IG bans Political Gatherings at Airports- Punch

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, has banned all forms of political, social and religious gatherings at all the nation’s airports, stressing that they are exclusive security zones.

The police authorities said the ban was necessary to avert security breaches and protect critical infrastructure, travellers, aircrew, airport staff and personnel at the nation’s local and international airports.

Rising from a strategic security meeting at the Force Headquarters, Abuja, on Tuesday, the Police High Command directed the airport command’s Commissioners of Police and Commissioners of Police in states hosting the airports to ensure that, in line with international best practices, firm security measures were taken to safeguard the airports and their critical infrastructure.

This, it said, was to prevent a situation where the airports were turned into places of political assemblies, religious worship and other social receptions.
