Kwankwaso Is A Threat To Kano’s Security, Recruits Youth for Terror Movement — APC Chairman Calls for Arrest

Abdullahi Abbas, the Kano State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has called for the arrest of former governor Rabiu Kwankwaso, accusing him of posing a security threat to the state.

This follows Kwankwaso’s speech at the 85-kilometre road construction flag-off in Madobi community, where he alleged that the past administration bred Boko Haram terrorists and misled the Federal Government to destabilize Kano.

Abbas urged security agencies to detain Kwankwaso so he could identify those he claimed were undermining the state.

He emphasized that Kwankwaso’s threats would not intimidate the federal government.

“We want to call on security agents in the strongest terms to arrest this man so that he reveals the identity of those he referred to as enemies of the state working for the federal government to recruit Boko Haram terrorists and insurgents.’’

The chairman noted that the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) has had sinister motives to foment trouble in Kano.

“Kwankwaso for a long time, has been a security threat to Kano and the nation in view of his antecedents. He runs a movement in which he has been widely accused of recruiting youth, mostly school dropouts, to unleash terror on the people in the state,” he alleged.

Abbas also alleged that since the ‘forceful’ enthronement of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as Emir, hundreds of weapon-brandishing thugs have been recruited, and stationed at the emir’s palace, where all sorts of illicit substances are openly being sold, posing a threat to residents within and around.
