A former Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso has declared that no one can stop him from travelling to his home state. He said he will go there peacefully to see his constituents. The Kano Command of the police had warned Kwankwaso, who is now a serving senator, against visiting Kano. The State Police Commissioner, Rabiu Yusuf, said the police would not allow a breakdown of law and order due to tension over the visit.
However, Kwankwaso, who spoke through his spokesperson, Binta Sipikin, in Kano, said he will go to the state with ”seven camera drones”, three international media outfits and, ”a host of other top national and international friends of his.” “We are coming to visit friends, families and other relatives that for a long time, we have not seen. We have coordinated this visit with seven camera drones and other apparatus that would make it a hitch free home coming,” he said.
