Students who had planned to embark on a rally to call for Kano State Governor's resignation over bribery scandal have been given a warning by the police.
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje
The police in Kano have banned the Kano chapter of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, from embarking on a rally to call for the resignation of the governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, over an alleged $5 million bribe.
Recall that the governor was exposed in a trove of video clips verified by graphics experts receiving bribe, amounting to about $5million from contractors in the state, according to Daily Nigeria.
In an audio announcement made available to newsmen on Tuesday evening, the Kano police spokesperson, Magaji Majia, said the police rejected the students’ request to conduct rally on October 29 from Zoo Road to Kano government house.
The rally, according to Mr Majia, was to ask Mr Ganduje to step aside to allow for an independent investigation to ascertain the authenticity of the video clips.
“I wish to warn the group leader, Comarade Isa Abubakar, to caution his members to desist from embarking on this rally.
“However, we advise anyone who has a complaint or suggestion on this matter to approach the committee set up by the state House of Assembly in order to expand investigation.
“But whoever caught violating this directives would face the wrath of law,” Mr Majia said.
