Press release

The Office of The Inspector General of Police has observed an increase in the number of music road shows or carnivals carried out using public address systems punctuated with loud music.
These are often done without Police Permit which is a violation of the Public Order Act. It has also come to the attention of this office that these shows cause traffic obstruction and passersby get harassed, molested or robbed in the process.

In light of the above, all school authorities, parents and guardians are urged to warn their children to desist from such activities if police clearance is not granted.
