Another one in Kano! Police ban rallies, processions in the state


The Kano State Police Command has banned any form of rally, demonstration, procession or assembly in the state until further notice.

The order was contained in a statement signed by the Command’s Public Relations Officer, Deputy Superintendent of Police Abdullahi Haruna, and made available to newsmen in Kano on Saturday.

Similarly, he said, the command had withdrawn permission given to members of the public, civil society organisations, political parties, NGOs and other groups.

The order might not be unconnected with the tension generated following the query issued to the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, over alleged misappropriation of N3.4 billion by the Emirate Council under Sanusi’s leadership.

He explained that the action was necessary to prevent any threat, breach of the peace or break down of law and order in the face of various security challenges in the state.
