The Kano State Police Command said it has uncovered some faceless persons hiding under some Islamic sects to cause mayhem during the Eid el-Fitr festival.

The Commissioner of Police, Muhammad Usaini Gumel, said this during a meeting with Islamic clerics and representatives from the five emirate councils on Monday.

He, however, assured that the police had swiftly acted against criminals camouflaging themselves among law-abiding citizens to cause harm before, during and after the Eid el-Fitr celebrations.

He highlighted Kano as the only state where none of its citizens was held captive by kidnappers or bandits, attributing it to the vigilance of security agencies.

He said, “We have some names that hide under the guise of the Qadiriyya Islamic sect trying to cause disharmony. So, we have spoken with the leader of the sect, Sheikh Qaribullah Nasiru Kabara, and he has dissociated himself from them and even given the go-ahead to arrest anyone trying to disrupt peace.”

The police commissioner also hinted that the command’s intelligence units had uncovered another set of politicians who were not either satisfied with the ways things were going or didn’t get appointments and were hell bent on creating uncertainty.

He said, “I have directed police officers to arrest anybody they find with weapons or trying to create uncertainty among the people.”

Representing the Emir of Bichi, retired Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG), Bashir Albasu, praised the police commissioner for upholding peace in Kano.

He acknowledged Kano’s diverse population and constant influx of traders, and the city’s susceptibility to crime, but affirmed the commitment of the five emirate councils to support security efforts for sustained peace.
