POLICE SPEAK ON DEATH THREAT ALARM BY GANDUJE’S DEPUTY

The Kano State Police command says security has been beefed up around the deputy governor, Hafiz Abubakar.

This followed his alarm that there was threat to his life.

Abubakar, a loyalist of former Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso, have been at loggerheads with Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

In 2014, Kwankwaso tapped Abubakar, an academic and a Professor in Nutrition at Bayero University Kano, to run with incumbent Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.

In a petition dated 30th July, 2018 and addressed to Kano State police commissioner and copied to the Assistant Inspector General in charge of Zone I, and the state director of the DSS, Abubakar sought deployment of more security personnel around him.

He said the state government had released funds to mobilize youths from the 44 local government areas of the state to protest against his stay in office and that he should resign or face impeachment.

On Tuesday, Police Public Relations Officer, Magaji Musa Majia, told reporters that necessary measures had been taken to protect the deputy governor’s life.

He said: “As number two citizen, the deputy governor deserves protection from us.

“So, we have deployed more security personnel to his residence and convoy and we have placed another team of undercover security operatives around him for effective surveillance.”

Similarly, Police Public Relations Officer of Kano Zone One Headquarters, DSP Muhammad Sambo Sokoto, said the office of the Assistant Inspector-General of Police had received the petition.
