The Kano State Police Command has issued a warning to leaders of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the Supreme Court judgment on the 2023 governorship election appeal.

The warning follows an emergency meeting with heads of security agencies and party leaders held yesterday.

Commissioner of Police, CP Muhammad Usaini Gumel, urged the party leaders to ensure peace and tranquillity during and after the Supreme Court judgment.

He also assured residents of their safety, stating that the police and sister security agencies have devised comprehensive security plans to protect lives and property during the Christmas and New Year festivities.

“We are committed to updating you on the security situation of the state, particularly regarding the safety of lives and property,” CP Gumel said. “We have also thwarted attempts by faceless political groups who intended to disrupt the peaceful atmosphere prevailing in Kano.”

He commended the leadership of both NNPP and APC for upholding the peace accord signed on three separate occasions.

He said, “Recall that the police command had adequately attended to a number of plots by some faceless political pressure groups who are hell-bent on fomenting trouble and to stampede on the general security situation of the state from being very peaceful as it is at now.

“However, we must appreciate and commend the leadership of both the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) for maintaining their position on standing by the peace accord the third time since they both signed the commitment to ensuring peace and orderliness in all parts of the state.

“Today, Friday, December 8, 2023, the heads of the joint security agencies meeting was held at this Police Headquarters where the security situation was reviewed and the security arrangements agreed upon to be put in place for ensuring no breakdown of law and order before, during and after the state governorship Supreme Court verdict.

“In addition, the meeting addressed some emerging security concerns with the leadership of both NNPP, the APC and some selected local council chairmen.”
