Police foil planned demonstration against bad roads in Apac
Residents of Agulu Division in Apach Municipality have protested the poor state of roads in their area. They say most of the access roads and the main roads connecting them to social services like hospitals, markets, and schools have become impassable due to recent heavy rains in the area. The residents had planned a demonstration before police intervened, blocking them off before they could proceed to the mayor’s office on the grounds that they didn’t seek permission from the police. This follows several unsuccessful engagements with the municipality's leadership to repair bad spots on some community access roads in their area. The leaders of Apach Municipal Council attribute the poor state of roads in Apach Municipality to insufficient funds and a lack of equipment to carry out maintenance.
