Members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Kwankwasiyya movement in Kano State have announced that nothing will stop Senator Rabi’u Kwankwaso from visiting Kano State.
The Police Commissioner in Kano State, Rabi’u Yusuf, on Friday after a press conference advised former Kano State Governor, Kwankwaso, not to visit the state for a planned political rally asking him to suspend the visit based on the grounds of maintaining ‘peace and security.’
The Kwankwasiyya movement in response to this told journalists at the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) Secretariat on Saturday, January 27 that Kwankwaso will visit the state despite the advice by the Police Commissioner. They added that, should anything happen to Kwankwaso, the Police Commissioner, Yusuf should be held responsible.
Addressing a news conference in reaction to the advice by the Police Commissioner in Kano, leader of the Kwankwasiyya Movement, Rabi’u Bichi claimed that the Nigerian Police in Kano has been compromised.
Kwankwaso is scheduled to visit Kano State on Tuesday, January 30 amidst preparations for local government elections in the state.
The advisce by the police in Kano for him to suspend his visit according to the Commissioner of Police was based on intelligence reports that some miscreants planned to hijack the rally and use it to unleash mayhem in the society.
