The police have deployed 8, 000 personnel across Kaduna metropolis ahead of the protest by the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC over the sack of 36,000 civil servants by Governor Nasir El-Rufai.
Heavily armed security personnel are 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 are 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.
