In the petition, addressed to the Kano State Police Commissioner, Rabiu Yusuf, copied to the Assistant Inspector-General in Charge of Zone One and the State Director of SSS, the deputy governor, prayed for the deployment of more security operatives around him.

A loyalist to Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the deputy governor has been at loggerheads, with the State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.
