Rabi’u Yusuf, Kano police commissioner, has assured Igbo residents in the state of adequate protection of their lives and property.

The assurance was contained in a statement released on Tuesday by Magaji Majiya, the police public relations officer in the state.

At a meeting with the leadership of the Igbo community in the state, the commissioner said his command is committed to ensuring the safety of their lives and property like every other Nigerian living in the state.

“The meeting is to assure you of the commitment of the command toward ensuring safety of your lives and properties as every other Nigerian living in the State,” Yusuf said.

He called on Igbos living in the state to remain calm in spite of the quit notice issued by Arewa youth groups.

He urged them to continue to carry out their businesses lawfully and live peacefully with other ethnic groups.

In his remark, Boniface Ibekwe, Eze Igbo Kano, expressed gratitude to the commissioner for summoning the meeting “at this crucial time”.

Ibekwe also extolled the virtues of the people of Kano state, saying they are tolerant and well-mannered toward other ethnic groups living in their midst.

He called on all Igbos and other ethnic groups in the state to remain calm “as Kano remains our state of origin where most of our children were born and brought up”.

He also urged them to continue to pursue their legitimate businesses without fear of harassment.
