situation to promptly address any individuals or factions trying to undermine the relative peace that state presently enjoys.

However, Kano state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mohammed Usaini Gumel, has vowed to arrest and prosecute any person or group of persons that violated Governor Yusuf’s order.

CP Gumel Called on Kano State Residents to remain patriotic and obey the Kano State Government order which was Issued Wednesday morning.
He insisted that all forms of unlawful gatherings, protests and processions are banned in the state.
A Statement signed on his behalf by the Command’s Spokesperson, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa indicated that: “The Police Command in Kano State will ensure the State Government

Order that ban all forms of protests is being implemented with all sense of vigor as any person found will be arrested and prosecuted accordingly.
