Kano Police warns residents on unlawful religious process

Kano Police warns residents on unlawful religious process

The Kano State Po­lice Command has warned the peo­ple of the state, especially those who organised and conducted religious pro­cessions, to desist from the act or face the wrath of the law.
This is contained in a statement signed by the command’s Public Rela­tions Officer, DSP Maga­ji Majiya, and made avail­able to newsmen in Kano on Tuesday.
“The Kano State Po­lice Command under the leadership of CP Rabiu Yusuf is sounding a warn­ing, especially to people who organise and con­duct processions in the name of religious rite.
“The commissioner of police boldly warned that the command would not relent in ensuring that law and order prevailed on any religious group or sect that is trying to be­come a threat to the pub­lic peace and order,” Ma­jiya said.
According to him, the Command would con­tinue to respect the peo­ples’ rights to religion, but that it would not al­low any group to abuse the rights by breaking the law and infringing on oth­er people’s rights.
“We hope the good peo­ple of the state will contin­ue to cooperate with the Command to avert the criminal intent of some few elements in the state and its neighbourhood,” the police spokesman added.
