June 12 protest: Violators will be prosecuted, says Ayade

The Cross River government has cautioned against Democracy Day processions in the state on June 12.

This was contained in a statement released by his special adviser on media and publicity to the governor, Christian Ita.

According to the statement, the ban on processions in the state has not been lifted and that his administration will not allow any form of procession as a result of prevailing insecurity.

“The Cross River state government wishes to remind the general public that the ban on public procession and gathering in the state is still very much in force,” the statement reads.

“Due to the prevailing security situation in the country, government will not permit any procession or gathering under any guise on June 12 which is designated as Democracy Day.

“Government urges anyone or group of persons wishing to mark the June 12 Democracy Day to do so quietly within the confines of their homes.

“Parents are hereby advised to keep a firm grip on their kids and wards to prevent them from falling prey to agents of destabilisation as the full weight of the law will be brought to bear on violators of the ban on procession.

“As a responsible and people-oriented government, the Cross River state government under Professor Ayade wishes to assure all citizens that it will continue to protect lives and properties in the state.”
