By Salihu Ali, Kano


The Kano State Police Commissioner, Muhammad Usaini Gumel, says, the police will obey the court order issued by a Federal High Court stopping the Kano State government from reinstating Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II.

The Police Commissioner at a joint briefing with other top security officers, warned that they would not allow any individual to break the peace and unity of the State.

He said, “Our joint security resolved to keep peace in Kano, and the development surrounding the Emirates Council; the Police Command respects the court order, alongside other security agencies.”

He said the order to arrest the dethroned Emir Bayero had not been transmitted to the police command as they only read it on social media.

He added that they would not be compelled by anybody to carry out any assignment.

“As far as the situation of the Emirate is concerned, we recognize the Emir who was there as stated by the Court, and we are only respecting Court orders which say status quo should be maintained and that is where we stand.”

The Police Commissioner added that “the position of law is very clear, whoever tries to cause problems will be arrested without hesitation.”

He warned Miscreants to stay away from causing havoc in the State, as the safety of the people remains sacrosanct.

Meanwhile, amidst the order of Arrest of the deposed Emir Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero by Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, Bayero has moved to one of the palaces called the Nasarawa Palace.

A visit by Voice of Nigeria saw heavy security personnel at the Nasarawa Palace.

Also, a visit to the main Palace shows that the new Emir Sanusi Lamido Sanusi is in the royal house.
