The Commissioner of Police in Kano State, Usaini Gumel, has appealed for calm in the state amidst the ongoing tussle over the Emir seat.
The government on Thursday reinstated Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as the Emir of Kano four years after his dethronement by former governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s administration.
The development has caused protests in the state with the residents divided into various groups on the matter.
Governor Abba Yusuf on Saturday ordered the arrest of the deposed Emir, Aminu Ado Bayero, over an alleged plot to breach the peace in the state.
Gumel, in a chat with journalists on Saturday, assured the people of the state that the police and security agencies had taken concrete measures to deal with any form of security threats.

Gumel reiterated that the police in collaboration with state security agencies had devised a comprehensive security network to deal decisively with anyone or group of people attempting to undermine the peace in the state.
He urged the people of the state to remain calm and go about their lawful activities.
