The Kano State Police Command has denied rumours that the State Commissioner of Police, Muhammad Wakili has been transferred.
In a statement on Wednesday, the command’s spokesperson, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, stated that the rumour is the ‘handiwork of mischief makers.’
DSP Abdullahi Haruna urged members of the public to ignore the rumour.
Haruna stressed that the command would not be distracted by such rumours, adding that already, police personnel had arrested three persons suspected of buying permanent voter cards (PVCs) from illegible voters in areas earmarked for the rerun governorship election.
He said that the suspects, Sa’adatu Isma’il, 39, of Brigade Quarters, Kano, and Halima Abba, 55, of Tal’udu Quarters, were arrested on Tuesday at about 8:00pm based on information that they were purchasing PVCs from voters at Gama Quarters in Nasarawa Local Government area of the state.
“The suspects bought the PVCs each at the sum of N5,000 and above, eight PVCs were recovered from them with the cash sum of 10,000,” Haruna said.
He also said that on March 13, at about 10:00 a.m, one Mukhtar Shu’aibu of Dandishe Quarters, Kano, was also arrested for buying PVCs within the area.
“He confessed to having purchased two PVCs at the sum of N3,000 each,” the police spokesman stated.
