Kano Government Lifts Curfew

Abba Kabir Yusuf

Kano State Government has signalled the end of a 24-hour curfew imposed to deter any form of violence after court ruling voiding Abba Kabir Yusuf's election as Kano Governor.

Shortly after state executive council meeting, the commissioner for information, Baba Halilu Dantiye confirmed the end of the curfew.

There were earlier fears that the curfew could be extended following the three panel tribunal led by Justice Oluyemi Akintan Osadebay read a judgement that throws NNPP's Abba Kabir Yusuf out of office.

The tribunal further instructed INEC to withdraw the certificate of return it issued to Yusuf and issue a new one to Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna of the APC.

Also affirming the end of the curfew, Kano Police PRO in a post on his verified facebook page said the curfew has been lifted.

This signals that people, especially business men that were mostly affected by today's lockdown would resume normal activities.

There is heavy presence of security in and around the state, making it unlikely for any breakout of conflict.
