During the arrest of the suspected thugs (Yan Daba), a total of 34 dangerous weapons, 23 clubs (Gora) and two gallons of fuel (Petrol) were found. Court charges will be filed against the suspects.
In his remarks, “The Commissioner of Police, Kano State Command, CP Sama’ila Shu’aibu Dikko, warns that criminals will have no hiding place in Kano State. They are advised to either repent or leave the State completely. Otherwise, they will be arrested and face the full wrath of the law.”
In addition, Kiyawa thanked the people of Kano State for their prayers, encouragement, continuous support, and cooperation. He also recommended that residents pray for the nation and state, report incidences to the nearest police station, and not take the law into their own hands.
