Eid-el-Kabir: Police ban Durbar activities in Kano



The Police Command in Kano State has banned Durbar activities during the forthcoming Eid-el-Kabir celebrations in the state.

In a statement issued on Thursday by Mr Usaini Gumel, the state commissioner of police, the police command stated that the ban became necessary to sustain peace in conjunction with all the relevant security stakeholders.

“In furtherance, a ban on all contending parties has been placed, restraining both from conducting Durbar activities for the upcoming Eid-el-Kabir celebrations,” Gumel said.

He, however, advised worshippers to conduct their normal Eid prayers at the various designated praying grounds, as was traditionally done in the past.

“In this trying period, the police will enforce the existing court order, prevail on the two contending parties regarding the Kano Emirateship Tussle, and urge them to remain apart and respect the court order,” he said.

The commissioner said the command would want to see continued collaboration and cooperation from all stakeholders to collectively work together to build a safer and more secure environment.

He urged the general public to keep reporting any suspicious movement of persons or items to the nearest police station. (NAN)
