Heavily armed security personnel were stationed at the NLC headquarters along Independence Way and strategic areas of the metropolis while others were patrolling the town.

The police and other security personnel were also stationed along major streets in the city including Kaduna-Kachia road, Kaduna-Zaria highway and Kaduna-Abuja expressway.

Most streets were empty with minimal vehicular movement due to the high presence of security personnel within the town, with few commercial vehicles plying the roads.

The NLC President, Ayuba Wabba is expected to lead other union members from across the country to protest the mass sack of workers by the state government.

However, the police and state government on Wednesday announced total ban on all forms of protests in the state.

Spokesperson of Kaduna State Police Command, Muktar Aliyu, disclosed that about 8,000 policemen were deployed in the city to stop the planned protest and ensure law and order.
