Police place ban on protest in Kano

The police in Kano has imposed a ban on all forms of protest.

According to him, intelligence reports revealed that both the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) are mobilising for street protests against the tribunal sitting.

“Both the APC and the NNPP members are currently mobilising a rented crowd in the guise of the Civil Society Coalition without clearance from the leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress and without prior approval from the security agencies in the state”, he said.
