Herdsmen Entering Kano Must Show Police Clearance-CP Dikko




Kano State Commissioner of Police, Sama’ila Dikko, has said that herdsmen entering the state must get clearance from the police command.

Dikko said that the clearance from their current domain must show that they are leaving for Kano.

Addressing journalists shortly after an emergency security meeting with heads of security agencies at his office on Wednesday, May 26, Dikko said any herdsman that enters Kano without the clearance would be turned back.

He said the decision was part of the security arrangements that have been made by his command in a bid to maintain peace and security in the state.

Governor Ganduje of Kano had in the past invited herdsmen to make use of the Falgore forest in the state.

He was quoted saying: “There must be a sort of letter, showing that they are coming to Kano from that state. So, anyone who comes without clearance from our police formations, from the state they are coming from, will definitely be stopped and turned back to where they came from.”

In a related development, the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) says it would henceforth profile herdsmen entering the country from Niger Republic through Jigawa State.

The NIS Controller in Jigawa, Mr. Isma’il Abba, stated this while speaking at the decoration of 58 recently promoted officers of the agency.

He said the decision was aimed at tackling the annual influx of camels into the state through the common border.
