The Nigeria Police Force, Kano Command, has once again pledged to take decisive action against any planned protests and anything that may end the tranquility the state is now enjoying, ahead of the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Kano State governorship election.
Muhammad Usaini Gumel, Kano state Police Commissioner was speaking as the two major political parties, the New Nigerian People’s Party, NNPP, and the All Progressives Congress, APC, resigned a peace accord.
According to reports, Kano people are under a lot of stress as they await the Supreme Court’s decision on the contentious guber election. .
The Commissioner hinted that the State Joint Security Committee was in place to make sure that anybody under any guise that went against the signed peace accord would surely have himself to blame.
The police chief expressed anger that despite the peace agreement, some faceless groups were hellbent on creating chaos and uncertainty in the ancient city.
“We will not allow anybody, no matter his place in the society, to cause disharmony and violence among Kano citizens who are peace loving people,” he said.
Speaking, the Chairman of the NNPP, Hashimu Dungurawa and the State Deputy Chairman of APC, Shehu Maigari, disagreed on who was responsible for what happened after the first and second signing of peace accords in the State.
The NNPP State Chairman, Hashimu Dungurawa, said that his party and the State Governor, Alhaji Abba Kabir Yusuf, had been collaborating with the security forces to maintain peace, accusing the APC members of encouraging violence.
However, the APC Deputy Chairman, Shehu Maigari, said everyone was aware of who to blame for the loss of lives and the violent protests in the state, adding that his party had nothing to worry about.
