42

The Kano State Police Command has banned Durbar activities during the upcoming Eid-el-Kabir celebrations in the state.

The police said the ban became necessary to sustain the peace by the police command in conjunction with all the relevant security stakeholders.

In a statement released on Thursday by the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Usaini Gumel, the command stated that it would want to see continued collaboration and cooperation from all stakeholders to collectively work together to build a safer and more secure environment.

“In furtherance, a ban on all contending parties has been placed restraining both from conducting Durbar activities for the upcoming Eid-el-Kabir celebrations,” Gumel said.

He, however, advised worshippers to conduct their normal Eid Prayers at the various designated praying grounds, as was traditionally done in the past.

“In this trying period, the Police will enforce the existing Court Order and prevail on the two contending parties regarding the Kano Emirates tussle and urge them to remain apart and respect the court order,” he said.

The commissioner said the command would want to see continued collaboration and cooperation from all stakeholders to collectively work together to build a safer and more secure environment.

He urged the general public to keep reporting any suspicious movement of persons or items to the nearest police station.

Meanwhile, the command, on Wednesday, denied receipt of a letter from Bayero seeking permission to organise Sallah durbar during the forthcoming Eid-el-Kabir festivities.
