Hundreds Of Women Protest Appeal Court’s Sacking Of Gov Abba



Hundreds of women staged a protest march to the Kano State Police Command to show their displeasure over the recent Court of Appeal nullification of the election of Abba Kabir Yusuf.

The women, who carried placards and sang songs in support of Mr Yusuf, said they were protesting the alleged injustice done to the people of Kano State by the appellate court.

The protesters, who began their march from the residence of former Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso at Miller Road, went peacefully straight to the Kano State Police Command Headquarters in Bompai to hand over their letter of protest.

However, on their way to Bompai area, they were intercepted by teams of police officers and personnel of the Nigeria Correctional Service, who escorted them peacefully to their destination.

The women, most of whom wore red veils, converged on the Kano State Police Command Headquarters and demanded to see Commissioner of Police Usaini Gumel.

The placards had various inscriptions such as “Our mandate must be restored,” “Injustice exposed in CTC,” and “Kano voted for Abba,” among others.

One of them, Zuwaira Abubakar, said: “The protest is not for Abba alone but for Kano State. The world has seen that Governor Abba was voted for during the March 18 polls. The state should not be taken away from him.”

Another protester pleaded with the federal government to stop “interfering with the courts” and allow justice to be done.
