•Embattled Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II

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 (PPRO), DSP 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Similarly, he said, the command had withdrawn permission given to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 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.

He warned that any person or group of persons found engaging in any
unlawful assembly would be arrested and prosecuted in accordance with
the laws of the land. (NAN)
