The attention of the Kano State Police Command has been drawn to a mischievous, malicious, callous and demonstration of shame of press briefing tendered by Kwankwasiyya support group on the 09/09/2017 at about 2000hrs on NTA and other electronic media. Their actions portray them as pathological liars to say the least.
Nonetheless, the fracas occurred during “HAWAN DAUSHE” at Emirs Palace Kano on a second day of Eid-El Kabir an occasion organized by the emirate council purely traditional and not political. Whereby District Heads ( HAKIMAI) pay homage to His Royal Highness the Emir of Kano at “KOFAR KUDU”. On that fateful day the Kwankwasiyya faction of APC converged at Hasiya Bayero Hospital in thousands with their supporters drawn from Sokoto, Kogi, other neighboring states and various Local Government areas of Kano state with the ulterior motives to disrupt the occasion organized by the emirate council, which was not for political congregation, chanting “Bamayi” “Bamayi” “Bamayi”, meaning “we are not in support, we are not in support” “we are not in support” This happened when the factional group sighted the convoy of His Excellency the Executive Governor of Kano State Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje OFR approaching the venue of the occasion and suddenly started pelting the convoy.
However, with the deliberate caused of such chaos a clash ensued between the two APC factions. With quick intervention of the Police normalcy was restored. Some notable Kwankwasiyya’s addent supporters were rescued from the ugly incident these are:- (a) Former Commissioner in the past administration Dr.Yunusa Adamu Dangwani (b) Former S.S.G. Dr. Rabiu Suleiman Bichi (c) Former Director Special Services, Alhaji Danyaro Yakasai escorted by the Police to their respective residences safely.
However, it is quite disheartening, these same people that caused the pandemonium only for them to turn a leaf of shame against the Police that save their lives from being lynched. On no occasion that the Kwankwasiyya faction of APC sought for audience with the Commissioner of Police and their request was turned down, such assertion was nothing but an act of mischief.
The Kano Police Command is calling on all the good citizens of the State and equally assuring them, that no amount of propaganda, intimidation, misrepresentation and total evasion of facts will deter her from carrying out its constitutional duty of maintaining law and order.
The Nigeria Police would not allow any group or organization under whatsoever guise to disrupt the relative peace the citizens of Kano State are currently enjoying. The Police Command is hereby issuing a stern warning to all miscreants under whatever guise, that it will not fold it’s hands and watch thugs hatching ugly situation that may lead to mayhem in the entire state.
In this regards, the Commissioner of Police Kano State, Mr. Rabiu Yusuf Psc(+) inaugurated a powerful team of Police detectives headed by the Deputy Commissioner of Police incharge of Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department, DCP Ahmed Muhammad Azare to immediately embark of painstaking investigation and find out the immediate and remote causes of the clash that occurred on the 2nd September, 2017.
