The Kano State command of the Nigerian Police force on Friday issued a statement of intent claiming to be in control of the situation as religious activities begin in the state.

The statement was as a result of the growing uncertainty of who will conduct the Jumma’t prayers at the Kofar Kudu central Mosque as the authentic Emir of the Kano Kingdom.

The Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Usaini Gumel, emphasised that “all necessary security arrangements have been made for Alhaji Aminu Bayero to observe his Jummah Prayers in the Mosque where he lives at the Nasarawa Palace.”

He added that the police are also prepared to provide security at the Nasarawa Palace for Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II, who is expected to observe his prayers there.

In a bid to quell the misinformation, CP Gumel reassured the public, stating, “Members of the public are therefore advised to ignore the false reports and misinformation circulating on social media and to go about their activities without fear of molestation or intimidation.”

He further assured residents that the police, and other state security agencies, are committed to ensuring a peaceful environment for Friday’s congressional prayers.
