Kano State governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has warned the Shiites sect and the youth in the State against flagrant disregard of law and order, described the entire development as objectionable.
Governor Ganduje noted with great concern the recent violent clash between members of Shiite sect and some group of individuals which occurred as a result of deliberate disregard to an earlier order by the Police Command banning the Shiite from engaging in public procession in the state.
In a press statement signed by the State information commissioner, Comrade Muhammad Garba stated that the unfortunate violation of police order by the Shiites and taking law into their hands constituted criminal breach of law and order and will not be condoned henceforth.
Kano governor therefore, reminds the group and the general public of the ban by the Police Command of any form of public procession by members of the shiite group and any other group, organizations or individuals in whatever guise without prior authorization from security.
Governor Ganduje warned that his government will decisively deal with any person, group, organization or individuals that henceforth violate this order in its effort to ensure maximum security of lives and property and maintenance of law and order in the state.
Members of the Shiite group and the general public are therefore, advised to be law-abiding and live harmoniously and peacefully with one another.
Kano is our State. We are proud of it. We must therefore all put hands on deck to it make it peaceful, live peacefully and make it great, said Ganduje.
