The Kano State Police Command has asked a former governor of the state, Rabiu Kwankwaso, to suspend his visit to the state.
Commissioner of Police, Rabiu Yusuf, gave the warning on Friday morning while addressing journalists at the Bompai police headquarters in Kano. He said failure to comply with it might attract “stiffer implication”.
Kwankwaso, who is the senator representing Kano Central in the National Assembly, and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) under the leadership of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, are set to hold parallel political rallies on January 30.
The two separate events are centred on the February 10 local government election in the state and the 2019 general election.
Yusuf said intelligence information has revealed that the rally by the Kwankwaso group could be hijacked by “miscreants”.
He advised Kwankwaso to consider postponing his trip “until the tension generated is down”.
