The Kano State Police Command has said the Police will enforce the court order restraining the state government from dissolving the five new Emirates created by the Abdullahi Ganduje led administration in the state.

 

This is as security agencies in the state have promised to ensure there is no breakdown of law and order, mentioning the safety and security of all the residents in the state remain sacrosanct.

 

The state Commissioner of Police, Usaini Gumel, made this known while addressing a joint security press conference at the command’s headquarters in Bompai Kano on Saturday.

 

“The police command is expressly obeying the court order with Suit No: FHC/KN/CS/182/2024 dated May 23, 2024, issued by the Federal High Court sitting in Kano alongside all law enforcement agents in the state.

 

“Therefore, we are calling on members of the public to know that the police in the state are working together with the military and other security agencies and are at full capacity for providing adequate security to everyone as we are committed to carrying out our statutory duties as provided by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

 

“No doubt, the law-abiding people of Kano State are known for a revered cultural heritage and respect for constituted authorities and in this regard, advised to remain calm, patient, and to keep cooperating with security agencies as the matter described will be addressed by the court on the 3rd of June 2024,” Gumel said.

 

He stated that the position of the law is clear, saying that whoever under whatever guise is found to be planning to disrupt the peace being enjoyed in the state or feels that he/she can jeopardise the existing security settings in the state will be arrested and made to face the full wrath of the law.

 

“Therefore, as the police command is leading other security agencies to sustain the peace and peaceful coexistence for overriding interests, miscreants should stay clear of violence in all its ramifications and should not take advantage or hijack the current situation to launch an unprovoked attack on people, property and infrastructure of the State.

 

“Any person found with such tendency will be ruthlessly dealt with according to the law of the land.

 

“On this note, it is on behalf of all the security agencies, I thank all the good people of the state for their understanding, prayers, continuous support, and cooperation,” he concluded.
