Kano: Police assure of adequate security ahead of Akpabio’s visit

The Kano State Police Command has assured of its readiness to provide adequate security for the visit of the President of the Senate, Senator Godswill Akpabio, to the state on March 2.

Command Commissioner, Hussaini Gumel, gave the assurance when he spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria.

Gumel told NAN on Friday in Kano: “We have mobilised sufficient armed personnel to provide security cover for our Senate President before, during and after the visit.

“We will not tolerate any act capable of breaching the security in the state.

“We have deployed sufficient personnel to provide security at all roads and intersections leading to the institution (Bayero University, Kano) from Malam Aminu International Airport and all other land terminus.”

Gumel said the Command recognised the fact that it was incapable of securing the Senate president alone hence it was partnering with other security agencies to ensure a hitch-free visit.

During the visit, Akpabio will be at Bayero University to witness the 38th convocation of the university and conferment on honorary doctorate degree to the Deputy Senate President, Senator Barau Jibrin.
