BEVERLY HILLS, January 26, (THEWILL) – The former Governor of Kano state, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, has insisted that nothing can stop him from visiting the state despite the advice against such by the Kano State Police Command.
THEWILL recalls that the state police command had warned of a security threat to the former governor in view of his scheduled visit to the state on Tuesday and appealed to Kwankwaso to defer the proposed visit for peace and stability to reign in the state, the police had
The Kano State Commissioner of Police, Rabiu Yusuf, during a press briefing on Friday had cautioned Kwankwaso that he could face the wrath of the law if violence erupts during his visit.
“It is the candid view of the police that such a visit should be shelved by Kwankwaso until the tension generated by the planned visit subsides and security in the state is neutralised,” Yusuf had said.
However, in a response to the Police, Kwankwaso said nothing would stop him from visiting Kano to meet his constituents.
Kwankwaso through his spokesperson, Binta Sipikin, said his mission was to visit friends, families and other relations whom he had not seen for a long time.
“We coordinated the visit with camera drones and other apparatus that will make the visit a hitch-free homecoming,” she said.
Also, the head of his security team, Idris Dambazau, urged supporters to continue their preparation to receive Kwankwaso on Tuesday as planned insisting that the Senator would not yield to the advice given to him by the police to shelve the visit.
