Police Bans Protests Amid Tension Over Kano Tribunal Judgement


The Kano State Police Command has warned against protests
over thenoutcome of the ongoing election petition tribunal in the state.


The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) and the All
Progressives Congress (APC) have reortedly repared crowds to protests the
outcome of the tribunal.


NNPP had mobilized its members from across the state to
match from the Kofar Nassarawa City Center to Government House to protest what
they termed moves to snatch their victory by the APC.


However, in response, the opposition APC, through its
spokesperson, Ahmad Aruwa, issued a statement asking members to come out
en-mass to counter the NNPP.


Responding, in a statement signed by the State Commissioner,
Muhammad Gumel, he said, “in consideration of the confirmatory intelligence
products at the disposal of this Police Command, all forms of street protests
are hereby banned across all parts of the State.


“Members of the public should therefore note that it has
come to our knowledge that both the APC and the NNPP members are currently
mobilizing rented crowd in the guise of Civil Society Coalition and without
clearance from the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress and without prior
approval from the security agencies in the state.


“Both organizers as well as the umbrella body should note
that any attempt to disrespect NLC and the Security Agencies in the state, by
playing around the fragile security situation, which the combined security
agencies have been managing, is not only uncivil, criminal but also an offense
against National Security.”


Gumel said the police command is grateful for the enormous
support and cooperation it has been enjoying from the good people of the State
for the peace, security, stability and the overall interest of all residents.
