Eid el-Kabir: Police ban durbar activities in Kano


The Kano State Police Command has banned durbar activities during the forthcoming Eid el-Kabir celebrations in the state.

A statement issued on Thursday by Commissioner of Police Usaini Gumel said the ban became necessary to sustain peace in the state.

Gumel declared that a ban has been placed on all contending parties. He said the parties have been restrained from conducting Durbar activities for the upcoming Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.

He advised worshippers to conduct their normal Eid prayers at the various designated praying grounds, as was traditionally done in the past.

“In this trying period, the police will enforce the existing court order, prevail on the two contending parties regarding the Kano emirateship tussle and urge them to remain apart and respect the court order,” he said.

The commissioner of police said the command would want to see continued collaboration and cooperation from all stakeholders to collectively work together to build a safer and more secure environment.

He urged the general public to keep reporting any suspicious movement of persons or items to the nearest police station
