Police in Kano Ready to Deal with Any Illegal Shiite Procession


The Kano State Police Command has vowed to deal with any religious group organising processions and violating the law. The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Rabiu Yusuf, boldly warned that the command will not relent in ensuring that law and order prevails on any religious group or sect that is trying to become a threat to the public peace and order.

According to a statement signed by the spokesman of the police in Kano, Magaji Musa Majia, and made available to THISDAY in Kano monday. The statement warned any group which would organise and conduct processions in the name of religious rite in the state.

He said the command will continue to respect the Right to Religion but will not allow any group to misuse the right by breaking the law and infringement of other people’s rights in the community and public roads. The police command urged people of the state to continue to cooperate with the command to avert the criminal intent of some few elements in the state and its neighbourhood.
