Emirship Tussle: Why We Chased Sanusi’s Guards From Palace – Police

The police have affirmed that security has been beefed up at the two palaces being occupied by the two princes contending for the stool of the Emir of Kano.

Recall that the police took over the security of the main palace from local hunters guarding the reinstated Lamido Sanusi.

The outgoing Commissioner of Police in the state, Usaini Gumel, in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday, said the two palaces have been fortified with additional security agents.

He said the officers were deployed to check security threats until the resolution of the tussle over the emirship of the state.

Mr Gumel, an assistant inspector-general of police, said the command reinforced personnel deployment to ensure adequate security and peaceful coexistence in the state.

”Armed personnel have been deployed to provide security at the Kofar Kudu Palace, the residence of Emir Malam Mohammadu Sunusi, and the Nasarawa Mimi Palace, the residence of Emir Aminu Bayero.

“The police appeal for public support and urge residents to provide information that could aid in maintaining peace, progress, and political stability.

“The command is committed to providing the required security that will enable all residents to pursue their legitimate activities without threats to lives and property,” NAN quoted the commissioner saying.
