Aerial surveillance in Kano as normalcy gradually returns

Kano (WorldStage Newsonline)-- The Inspector General of Police, Alhaji Hafiz Ringim has drafted a helicopter to Kano for aerial surveillance operation a day after hoodlums attempted to invade Kano Government House.

Although, organized labour and civil society organizations had not officially called off the industrial action, economic activities had started picking up in Kano, as commercial motorbike operators on Tuesday engaged in legitimate business, ferrying passengers from one location of the city to the other.

But the ever busy Kano Central market, at Sabon Gari area is still under lock and key. Banks, filling stations and shops are also still under lock.

No fuel subsidy removal protesters were sighted on the streets of Kano, as people were going about their business unmolested, while both public and private sector workers in the state are still complying with the organized labour's seat at home order.

A combined team of Security operatives, comprising the army, Air force, Customs, Local Vigilante groups, mobile and regular police officers had been deployed to the Kano Government House to beef up security and keep miscreants at bay, while motorists had been restricted from plying all access routes to the Government House.

The organized labour and civil society organizations had struck a consensus to suspend rallies but that workers should stay at home in compliance with the nationwide strike over the fuel subsidy removal.

The Kano State Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Comrade Inuwa Isah Danguguwa, made a radio broadcast that protest rallies in the city had been suspended.

He said the suspension was for all stakeholders to cooperate in the interest of peace and security in the state and to prevent hoodlums from hijacking the rallies and disrupt the peace and tranquility in the state.
