The Kano State Police Command has issued a warning over an alleged plan by some political party followers to stage a protest against the ruling delivered by the Court of Appeal over the Kano State Governorship election.

The State’s Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Usaini Gumel raised the alarm earlier today as he disclosed that the followers were already mobilizing people to go into the streets to shut down the state in an action that could result in violence.

CP Gumel in a statement through the Command’s Spokesperson, SP Abdullahi warned that anyone who attempts to affect the peace in the state will be arrested and made to face the penalty in accordance with the law.

The statement partly reads:

“Credible information at the Command’s disposal revealed the intention of some groups of political party supporters using unconventional media platforms, mobilizing people and planning to enter the streets in form of protest to the Kano State Governorship Appeal Court’s verdict which was delivered on Friday, 17th November 2023.

The information revealed that the protesters intend to shut down the State in an action which may likely result in violence.

It’s on this note that the police command issued a warning to residents of the state to be extra careful as whoever intends to conduct any protest or procession should do so by the provisions of the law. Adequate security arrangements have been put in place to prevent escalation of tensions that may lead to the breakdown of law and order; warning that whoever attempts to disrupt the peace in the State, will be arrested and made to face the full wrath of the Law.

Furthermore, you will all recall that before the court ruling, the leaderships of both NNPP and APC had been invited by the Kano State Police Command where the peace accord was signed on Thursday, 16th November 2023.

The objective of the peace accord was to maintain harmony and ensure that the political landscape in Kano State remained peaceful, irrespective of the judgment’s outcome”.
