BREAKING… Police issues fresh directives in Kano, bans durbar activities



The Nigeria Police Force, Kano Command has banned Durbar activities during the forthcoming Eid-el-Kabir celebrations in the state.

This is contained in a statement issued on Thursday by the Commissioner of Police, CP Usaini Gumel.

Gumel stated that “the ban became necessary to sustain the peace by the Police Command in conjunction with all the relevant security stakeholders.

“In furtherance, a ban on all contending parties has been placed restraining both from conducting Durbar activities for the upcoming Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.”

He, however, advised worshippers to conduct their normal Eid Prayers at the various designated praying grounds, as was traditionally done in the past.

“In this trying period, the Police will enforce the existing Court Order and prevail on the two contending parties regarding the  Kano Emirateship Tussle and urge them to remain apart and respect the court order,” he said.

The commissioner said the command would want to see continued collaboration and cooperation from all stakeholders to collectively work together to build a safer and more secure environment.

Gumel therefore urged the general public to keep reporting any suspicious movement of persons or items to the nearest police station.
