BREAKING: We Won’t Arrest Bayero, Security Agents Defy Gov Yusuf by amoreobansu: 12:07pm On May 25
Security agents on Saturday said they won’t arrest deposed Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero as ordered by Governor Abba Yusuf.

The Governor, in a statement by his Director General, Media and Publicity, Sanusi Bature Tofa, ordered the arrest of Bayero, accusing him of “creating tension in the state.”

“The former Emir was smuggled into Kano city last night in an attempt to forcefully return to the palace two days after being deposed by the Governor,” Yusuf said.

But the Commissioner of Police in Kano, Mohammed Usain Gumel, who addressed newsmen at the Command Headquarters, said the police and all security agencies in the state won’t carry out the order.

He said they were obeying the court order that restrained the State Government from enforcing the new law that reinstated Lamido Sanusi as 16th Emir of Kano.

With him at the briefing were: ML Falala (NSCDC); MA Sadiq (Army Commander); IS Abdullahi (Fed Road Safety Corps) and Sulaimam of the Correctional Centre, among other heads of security agencies.

Gumel said: “The Police Command is expressly obeying the Court Order with SUIT No. FHC/KN/CS/182/2024 Dated 23rd May, 2024 issued by the Federal High Court sitting in Kano alongside ail Law Enforcement agents in the State.

“Therefore, we are calling on members of the public to know that the Police in the State is working together with the military and other security agencies and are with full capacity for providing the adequate security to everyone as we are committed to carrying out our statutory duties as provided by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria

“No doubt, the law abiding people of Kano State are known for a revered cultural heritage and respect for constituted authorities and in this regard, advised to remain calm, patient, and to keep cooperating with security agencies as the matter described will be addressed by the Court on the 3rd of June 2024.

“Let me also remind you that the position of the law is very clear as whoever, under whatever guise is found to be planning to disrupt the peace being enjoyed in the State or feel that he she can jeopardize the existing security settings in the State will be arrested and made to face full wrath of the law.

“Therefore, as the Police Command is leading other security agencies to sustain the peace and peaceful coexistence for overriding interests, miscreants should stay clear of violence in all its ramifications and should not take advantage or hijack the current situation to launch unprovoked attack on people, property and infrastructure of the State. Any person found with such tendency will be ruthlessly dealt with according to the law of the land

“By and large, the combined security agencies in the State have set out all machinery in place to ensure no breakdown of law and order as the safety and security of all the inhabitants in the State remain sacrosanct.

But in a swift reaction, Kano Deputy Governor, Aminu Gwarzo, said there was nothing anybody could do to change Sanusi’s reinstatement.

Gwarzo spoke to reporters at palace of the Emir where Sanusi has been moved to.

He said if the police had received court order and were obeying it, the State Government did not.

He said: “When we asked who gave the court order, they said Justice Mohammed Liman and asked: the judge who is in America?”

The Deputy Governor accused the police of escorting Bayero back into the State, saying that the State Government was doing everything possible to avoid bloodshed.

Details Shortly…

Something major is brewing in Kano with all this game of thrones. The security operatives and the judiciary must not allow themselves to be used in breakdown of law and order.

It's fine. APC loves to wield federal might. Hungerbad (may his soul rest in peace) would always say, "All politics is local."

The law has been passed already and APC is going through the stages of grief. Acceptance will follow soon enough.

Good. This is how it should be.

Nigerian governors are power drunk. Every citizen of this country is entitled to fundamental rights.

You can't just wake up and call for the arrest or bar a citizen of Nigeria from entering a state because you are a governor. The law is supreme.
