Gov Yusuf Bans Protests As Kano Emirate Tussle Lingers.

Kano State Government has imposed stringent restrictions on all public gatherings intended for protest.

According to his spokesperson, Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, the governor directed the Police, the Department of State Services, and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps to apprehend, detain, and prosecute any individual or group partaking in demonstrations on the streets of Kano.
“This decisive action is a preemptive strategy aimed at averting any potential breakdown of law and order orchestrated by adversaries of the state.”

“We are privy to credible intelligence indicating that certain prominent figures from the opposition party in Kano have devised plans to sponsor student associations and political agitators from other northwestern states to incite chaos under the guise of advocating for the dethroned Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero.”

The state government has explicitly outlawed protests, demonstrations, or processions of any kind, and individuals found on the streets of Kano engaging in such activities will be promptly apprehended.

“Through this declaration, we caution student groups against being manipulated by troublemakers who are resolute in fomenting disorder in Kano.”
Over the weekend, there were protests by groups and individuals who kicked against the disbandment of the emirates and the sack of five monarchs.

Some of the protesters even demanded the return of Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero as Emir of Kano.
Ado Bayero and Emir Muhammadu Sanusi are locked in a battle for control of the Kano emirate.

The crisis took a new dimension when both camps obtained injunctions favourable to them, but sparking confusion in the town.
