The Police in Kano State have warned against any unauthorised protest on the suspension Alhaji Haruna Doguwa, the Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Magaji Majiya gave the warning in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday, insisting that any unlawful protest would attract sanction according to the law.
Majiya said the warning became necessary as intelligence report indicated that some sponsored “undesirable elements’’ from the 44 local government areas of the state were planning a protest.
He alleged that they planned to hold illegal meeting in Kano on Sunday.
“The command hereby warns those planning the illegal meeting to desist from doing so as its men are ready to deal decisively with anyone caught in the act.
“The command has not given permission to any group of persons to hold meeting.
“So, it will not hesitate to deal ruthlessly with any person or group of persons that violated the order,’’ Majiya said.
According to him, the command has already arrested some persons who allegedly sponsored the planned meeting.
“The suspects are currently assisting in our investigations which will lead to the arrest of principal organisers,’’ he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that since the suspension of the state APC chairman, security had been beefed up in Kano and its environs.
