Police in Kano have declared their preparedness to quell any disturbances that may arise following tomorrow’s Supreme Court judgement in the appeal filed by Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of New Nigerian Peoples Party against his sacking by the Appeal Court.
The police have assured residents of their safety before, during, and after the Supreme Court judgement on the governorship elections.
State Commissioner of Police, Hussaini Gumel, gave the assurance during interactive sessions with journalists in his office in Kano on Thursday.
Gumel stated that the command has implemented security measures to allow residents to carry on with their legitimate businesses without threats to lives and property.
He said, “We have mobilised sufficient armed personnel to provide security at all flashpoints, including political party offices, the State Government House, INEC HQ, banks and commercial areas, mosques, churches, recreation centres and motor parks before, during and after the judgement.
“I am giving 100 per cent assurance to all law-abiding residents of the state to go about freely with their daily activities without threat to lives and property.”
He said armed security personnel would be in all identified strategic locations to ensure that they embark on surveillance duties and provision of physical security during and after the Supreme Court judgement.
