The Commissioner of Police, Kano State Police Command, CP Mamman Dauda has read Riot Act to political party leaders and thugs who may be planning to attack one another during the campaign period in the State.

Reading the Riot Act on Tuesday at a sensitization meeting with all political party leaders in the State on the need for peace and peaceful coexistence, he warned political party leaders and thugs who resort to attacking themselves during campaigns in the state to desist from such unlawful acts or be ready to be prosecuted.

A statement by the Command’s spokesperson, SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa said the CP was ably represented by the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Department of Operations, DCP Mu’azu U. Mohammed.

The CP stated that the meeting is a result of reports of clashes amongst political parties during campaigns in the state.

PowerPoint Presentations on the incidents were presented to them.

CP Dauda reminded politicians that the responsibility of the Police is the protection of life and property, and therefore, the Police will continue to be neutral in discharging duties.

He called on them to be vigilant and report any suspicious person(s), item(s), movement, or incidence(s) to the nearest Police station.

The State Police Boss then urged the political party leaders to prevail on their supporters to be of good conduct by shunning any act capable of disrupting the peace being enjoyed in the State, adding that the Police would not tolerate any surreptitious move by any political party to foment trouble and that peace has no alternative.

He further warned against the use of thugs (‘Yan Daba) and weapons during political activities in the State, as anyone caught will face the full wrath of the law.

Responding, the political party leaders in the meeting appreciated the CP for calling the meeting, stating that whoever is in Kano must appreciate the Police for their efforts in fighting all forms of crime.

Those at the meeting promised to be law-abiding in their political activities.

The meeting had representatives of all political parties in the State, the President, Civil Society Organisations, Comrade Ibrahim A. Waiya, and the representative of the Nigeria Union of Journalists in attendance.
