Kano Police Warn Against Protest Over Governor Yusuf’s Sacking

Residents of Kano State have been warned by the state police command against any form of protest following the Court of Appeal’s verdict sacking the state governor, Abba Yusuf.

The spokesperson of the command, Abdullah Kiyawa, in a statement released on Monday, said security operatives have credible information that some persons are mobilising to protest the court’s verdict.

The statement read, “The call is as a result of credible information at the command’s disposal that revealed the intention of some groups of political party supporters, using unconventional media platforms, mobilising people and planning to hit the streets in form of protest to the Kano State Governorship Appeal Court’s verdict, which was delivered on Friday, November 17, 2023.

“The information revealed that the intention of the protesters is to shut down the state in an action which may likely result in violence.

“It is on this note that the police command issued the warning to residents of the state to be extra careful as whoever intends to conduct any protest or procession should do so in accordance with the provisions of the law.”

Before the court judgment, the leaderships of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) were invited by the state police command, where a peace accord was signed on Thursday, November 16, 2023.

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