The Kano State Police Command said it has uncovered plots by some faceless individuals hiding under some Islamic sects to cause violence during the Eid el-Fitr festival.

Muhammad Usaini Gumel, the Commissioner of Police, said this during a meeting with Islamic clerics and representatives from the five emirate councils on Monday.

However, he assured that the police had swiftly acted against criminals disguising themselves among law-abiding citizens to cause harm before, during, and after the Eid el-Fitr celebrations.

Gumel noted Kano as the only state where none of its citizens was held captive by abductors or bandits, attributing it to the vigilance of security agencies.

“We have some names that hide under the guise of the Qadiriyya Islamic sect trying to cause disharmony. So, we have spoken with the leader of the sect, Sheikh Qaribullah Nasiru Kabara, and he has dissociated himself from them and even given the go-ahead to arrest anyone trying to disrupt peace,” he said.

The police commissioner also disclosed that the command’s intelligence units had unearthed another set of politicians who were either dissatisfied with how things were going or didn’t get appointments and were determined to create uncertainty.

“I have directed police officers to arrest anybody they find with weapons or trying to create uncertainty among the people,” he said.
