Meanwhile, it has come to the knowledge of the Anambra State Police Command that members of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) zone ‘B’ have concluded plans to stage a protest tagged “Operation No movement “aimed at registering their displeasure over the perceived delay in resolving the ongoing strike by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP)

During the protests, members of NANS plan to occupy the Head Bridge Onitsha, which is the gate- way to the South East and other parts of South -South geopolitical zones there by paralyzing vehicular movements and economic activities in the State.
