Following the speculated moves by some party loyalists to commence violent protests, in the wake of the Court of Appeal judgement that gave the All Progressives Congress, (APC) victory in Kano State, the Police Command there has put adequate security in place, to prevent the escalation of tension that may lead to the breakdown of law and order.
The Commissioner of Police, Husaini Gumel, made this known while warning that whoever attempts to disrupt the peace in the state, will be arrested and made to face the full wrath of the law.
CP Hussaini Gumel added that credible information at the command’s disposal has revealed the intention of some groups of political party supporters, using unconventional media platforms, mobilising people, and planning to enter the streets, in the form of protests to the Kano State Governorship Appeal Court’s verdict, which was delivered on Friday, November 17, 2023.
