IGP Baba Alkali



The Kano state chapter of INTER-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) – the umbrella body of registered political parties in Nigeria, – has rejected an alleged plan by the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) to deploy an infamous commander of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, Kolo Yusuf, to Kano as commissioner of police.

In a Press Statement issued after an emergency meeting today in Kano, the Deputy Chairman of IPAC Hon. Isa Nuhu Isa Danfulani who is the state chairman of Zenith Labour Party  along with fifteen chairmen of other political parties have alleged that  the Kano state Governor Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and other powerful forces at the centre  have lobbied the Inspector General of the Police to deploy Mr. Kolo Yusuf as the new commissioner of police to Kano.

The group said according to an online outlet Daily Nigerian, the IGP, who is out of the country, had given the governor assurance of the posting after his return from an oversea trip.

IPAC narrated that Mr. Kolo was involved in a gruesome murder case of a good citizen of Kano in person Abdullahi Alfa who was beaten to death by the defunct SARS in Kano under the leadership of Mr. Kolo a who was found guilty in a suit number FHC/K/H/CS/84/2013 at a Federal High Court in Kano.

At a news conference on Monday in Kano, the political body recounted on the efforts of notable leaders such as Late of Emir Ado Bayero and Late Bashir Tofa who wrote a petition against Mr. Kolo praying for his transfer out of Kano.

IPAC added that the deployment would also cripple the fragile peace in the state and possibly cause pandemonium during elections because the said police officer is known for flagrant abuse of power.

There have been fears over attempt to destroy the peaceful co-existence Kano enjoys ahead of 2023 elections, as it may be recalled that the Governorship Candidate of the ruling APC and his deputy were caught in election malpractice during the 2019 Governorship election.

The political parties enjoin the IGP and the Police Service Commissioner to carefully select a professional police commissioner to be deployed into the state.

“We wish to also thank the present CP Samaila Dikko who will be retiring soon and the AIG zone one for their professional conduct of duties in Kano”.

” As good citizens and political leaders, we want to reassure our commitment to cooperate with any commissioner of police with good character and attitude posted to Kano state, but we unanimously reject the purported posting of CP Kolo Yusuf”

CITAD Trains Remand Home Inmates In Kano




By Ozumi Abdul

Centre for information Technology and Development (CITAD) on Thursday concluded the training of inmates in the remand home in Goron Dutse, Kano state on ICT and phone repairs.

The training which lasted for six weeks was segmented into three weeks each, with the first segment dedicated to ICT training and the other for phone repairs.

While speaking, the Deputy Director of CITAD, Ahmad Abdullahi Yakasai, said his organization has been combing the entire country in the bid to bring technological development to bear upon every area of humanity, but however discovered that certain segments of people have been sidelined.

Yakasai noted that this informed the reason for his organization’s training of the underaged inmates of the remand home, because the inmates are not enjoying the benefits of ICT.

He said that CITAD finds it imperative to organise a training of such nature to build the capacities of the inmates, adding that unemployment might be the reason why they are in detention.

He exuded the confidence that with the training, the inmates would not only be self employed, but employers of other people when they are freed from detention.

“Well, as you are aware CITAD is a Centre For Information Technology And Development, we aim to use technology to bring development to the people. We have been working around the country, but we later discovered that certain segments of people have been sidelined, not deriving the benefit of technology, and that is the reason we organise this training to build their capacities.

“Also we think that most of them, it might be the issue of unemployment that brought them here. So by the time they leave here, they will be able to stand on their feet and to employ others”, Yakasai said.

On her part, the representative from the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, Kano state,Hajiya Abdullahi Hafsat expressed her happiness towards the efforts of CITAD, as well as enjoining the beneficiaries to make use of the opportunity when they returned to their various homes.

Also, the officer in charge of the remand home, Mallam Musa Muhammad Tarauni commanded CITAD for their gesture, promising that the remand home will continue to partner with the organization.
