LAGOS, Sept. 10 (Xinhua) -- All activities of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) remain proscribed in line with a court order of July 26, Nigeria's police chief Mohammed Adamu said Monday.
All gatherings or demonstrations by the group remain illegal and would be treated as gatherings for the advancement of terrorism, Adamu said in a statement.
Police had focused on plans by some members of the proscribed IMN to organize a nationwide demonstration designed to disrupt public peace, order and security in the country, Adamu said.
The police chief directed police in all states and the Federal Capital Territory to avert any planned demonstration by IMN members.
Nigeria officially outlawed the IMN at the end of July, saying the activities of the IMN posed potential threats to national security, law and order, socio-religious harmony and the country's sovereign integrity.
