The premises of the Plateau State Independent Commission, Jos is currently surrounded by Police in anticipation of a planned protest over the alleged shifting of the LG polls in the state.

Security sources say the purported protest billed for today was to be staged by a group of youths yet to be identified.

Police patrol vans and an armoured vehicle were as early as 8am planted at the PLASIEC premises with the road from Plateau Hospital down to Plateau club barricaded.

A media source however said there was a planned rally by a youth group, G17 at the Plateau House of Assembly and not a protest.

The Information unit of PLASIEC equally confirmed to MKB that the body was not contemplating any shift in the polls slated for February 17, 2018.

As at publishing time, no protester had arrived the scene but the security personnel who later openned the road were expected to prevent any damage to life or property when they eventually do.
