Written by on April 11, 2024

The Kano State Police Command said it has arrested 54 suspects who are planning to disrupt the ongoing Sallah festivities in different parts of the state.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Usaini Gumel, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Kano on Thursday.

“We have arrested 54 suspects with various assorted dangerous weapons who are planning to disrupt the ongoing Sallah festivities in different parts of the state.

“Exhibits of various description including cannabis, motorcycles and some deadly weapons among others were recovered from them.

“We are in position of intelligence information that some youth are clustering under the guise of being admirers of some top political office holders of the state.

“They have planned to storm the venue of the Durbar organised by the Kano Emirate in various political regalia.

”The action is highly likely to attract counter reactions and ultimately leading to breakdown of law and order.

”Sallah Durbar is not a political activity, and any form of display of political parties’ symbols, wearing of T-Shirts, Faze-Caps, erecting billboards and posters display are instruments of misinterpretation and ultimate breakdown of law and order will not be tolerated.

”Politicians are advised to prevail on their supporters to see Sallah as a celebration of unity and tradition,” he said.

The CP added that the suspects, who wanted to take advantage on the first day of Sallah, have been taken-off the streets of the five Emirates in Kano State.

“There is no space for criminals, therefore the police is warning those who have ears to listen as more raids on identified criminal hide out have been intensified,” he said.
