The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) has lauded the efforts of security operatives for apprehending thugs purportedly sponsored by the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Kano.

The Spokesperson of the NNPP Campaign Council, Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, issued a press statement commending the police and other security organizations for their efforts in ensuring peace during Kwankwaso’s mega rally in Kano.

Sanusi urged the police to ensure that all the political criminals and thugs arrested are brought to book to face the full wrath of the law.

“We welcome the development from the joint security operation of the army, police and civil defence personnel who have arrested over 300 political thugs assigned to orchestrate attack on the motorcade of our presidential candidate.

“We learned that two serving Local Government chairmen were also arrested in connection to the illegal possession of firearms. A notorious gang leader of APC thugs who has been known as the ruling party’s hit-man in now in the custody of police,” Sunusi said.

Prior to today’s visit, the police in Kano has advised that all political parties should suspend their rallies to avoid clash but in a letter sent to the new Commissioner of Police, the NNPP said it is not staging a rally but rather receiving its Presidential candidate who would be in Kano to join other Nigerians in exercising their civic rights on Saturday 25th of February, 2023.
