Even as the Nigerian Police has for the umpteenth time received court orders to unseal the headquarters of the Peace Corps of Nigeria located in Jabi Abuja, they have remained adamant to obey.


The Peace Corps of Nigeria Commandant Ambassador Dickson Akoh, on Friday morning led his officers and several civil society groups on a peaceful protest at the entrance of the building, demanding that the office be reopened after series of court judgments in their favour.

Members of some Civil Society groups in solidarity with the PCN opened the gate of the building, gaining entrance to the premises, but the police advised them and members of the Peace Corps to leave the environment.

The National Commandant had lamented unfair treatment by the police, saying they were not at the building to fight but only to reopen their office as the court had directed.
