Police uncover plot to unleash mayhem in Kano


Kano State Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Usaini Gumel, has warned that security operatives will not hesitate to enforce the law and maintain order in the state, amid the ongoing emirate tussle.

Speaking at a press briefing at the Government House, Kano, on Sunday night, Gumel revealed that “credible information” indicated miscreants are planning to unleash mayhem on key locations, including the House of Assembly.


He said this “has been verified by so many sources.”


“Anybody who wants to test the ground, the security has the capacity to deal with the miscreants. We have perfected plans to embark on serious patrols and detection on locations where we are informed the miscreants are hiding,” the CP said.

He also warned that different groups have been mobilised and paid to carry out attacks and disrupt peace, but that security operatives are ready to deal with them.


He added, “We are going to embark on a house-to-house search; anybody who feels he is stronger than the law should try it. Kano will remain safe and nobody can override the decision.


“The issue of chieftaincy affairs has been perfected by the executive arm of government. We are standing by the law and we are strictly going to enforce the existing law.”

The commissioner’s statement comes amid tensions surrounding the emirship tussle in the state after Aminu Ado-Bayero was dethroned on Thursday by the governor of the state, Abba Yusuf, and Muhammadu Sanusi II was reappointed as the 16th Emir of Kano on Friday.
