The outgoing Commissioner of Police, AIG Usaini Gumel, told journalists in Kano that fully equipped armed personnel have been deployed to handle any unforeseen circumstances around the identified areas.

Gumel said that the deployment of the armed personnel was to prevent security breach and ensure the maintenance of needed peaceful atmosphere pending the outcome of the tussle over the emirship in the state.
