The Kano State Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Usaini Gumel, has vehemently denied the circulating report claiming that the Kano State Police Command has been recruiting criminals into its ranks.

He regards this as a malicious and premeditated attempt by certain individuals to besmirch the reputation of the force.

In a conversation with journalists at his office in Kano, Gumel rebuffed the claims made by an online news outlet that the command was running a training school for constabularies within Kano Command.

He expressed bewilderment at this assertion, questioning when and where the state command supposedly established such a facility.

To set the record straight, Gumel clarified that Mr. Nasiru Abdullahi, who was unjustly labeled a criminal by the online news platform, is one of the 222 reformed influential youths in Kano who were granted amnesty by the state government.

Out of these 222 individuals, 50 volunteered to assist the police in combating crime and criminal activities, with Nasiru Abdullahi among them.

Gumel highlighted, “The Governor, His Excellency, Abba Kabir Yusuf, who had already granted them amnesty, instructed us to profile them and ascertain where they could be integrated for skill development and empowerment.

Further investigations have revealed that Nasiru Abdullahi has no criminal record in any court of law, and Gumel boldly challenges anyone to verify this fact.
