The Kano State Police Command congratulated the people of the State on this year’s Eid-El-Kabir Sallah Celebrations. The celebrations are starting on Wednesday, 28th June 2023. On the preceding, CP Mohammed Usaini Gumel urged the people to be extra careful. Additionally, the authorities urged them to remain law-abiding.
They asserted that they made adequate security arrangements by teaming with all the sister security agencies. The other civil volunteers’ uniformed services across the State will also assist with security arrangements during Eid-El-Kabir. The arrangements are especially tight at praying grounds and recreational centres.
Accordingly, Commissioner Mohammed Usaini Gumel shared security tips:
(i) Worshippers going to Eid Praying Grounds must avoid carrying offensive objects that may trigger suspicions or apprehension.
(ii) People must remain vigilant and report any suspicious movement of persons or items to the nearest Police Station.
(iii) Parents/guardians should prevail on their underaged children and unlicensed persons from operating or racing Motor Vehicles, Tricycles, and Motorcycles while going to Eid praying grounds and places of visit.
(iv) Road users are advised to observe traffic rules and regulations. Further, they are warned to desist from reckless driving, car-racing, over-loading and dangerous driving.
(v) Parents/Guardians should always accompany their children with adults while going to Eid Praying grounds to checkmate cases of missing children, accidents, or any unsolicited dealings.
(vi) Any group or individual under whatever guise must desist from any act or conduct that will cause a breach of peace and breakdown of Law and Order. Whoever engages in such activities will face the full wrath of the law.
(vii) Display of political parties’ symbols, such as billboards, fosters instruments of misinterpretations and the ultimate breakdown of law and order. Politicians must convince their supporters to sell Sallah as a Celebration of unity and tradition.
Also, there will be rigorous patrols and raids of criminal hideouts and black spots by joint security personnel to avert any breach of peace by criminals and miscreants throughout the State. The Police Command also wish to reiterate that criminals cannot hide in Kano State. They must repent or leave the State completely as they will leave no stone unturned.
Overall, residents should continue to pray for the State, the Nation on Eid-El-Kabir. The force urged citizens to report all ugly incidences to the nearest Police Station. Further, they must not take laws into their hands. Finally, the Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Usaini Gumel, FIPMA, psc, on behalf of the entire officers and men of the Command, wishes the good people of Kano State a serene festive period.
