There has been probable tension in the ancient city of Kano as the state police command has beefed up security around the state, following the judgement of the appeal court in Abuja, where the fate of the sitting governor, Abba Kabir Yussuf of the New Nigerian People’s Party, will be decided on Tuesday.

 

The appellate court had earlier reserved judgment, but the police on Monday, November 13, said that they had deployed adequate personnel and equipment in strategic locations in the state, noting that the action is necessary to forestall any attempt to cause disturbance or breakdown of law and order in the state.

 

In a statement issued on behalf of the state commissioner of police, Muhammad Usaini Gumel, the police command spokesperson urged the residents to go about their daily activities.

 

“The police and security agencies are assuring the good people of the state of adequate security before, during and after the declaration of the appeal judgment,” he said.
