The Katsina State Police Command has banned all forms of processions, rallies and unlawful assemblies by ‘religious groups or any group of people’ in the state.

This is contained in a statement signed by the command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Salisu Agaisa, and made available to newsmen in Katsina on Monday.

Agaisa said that “any person(s) caught violating this order will be arrested and prosecuted”.

“The command wishes to inform the general public that it has banned all forms of processions, rallies, gatherings and unlawful assemblies under any guise throughout the state,” he said.

The command urged parents and guardians not to allow their children to be involved in such acts.

“We are calling on parents and guardians to closely monitor their children and prevent them from taking part in such acts, as they could easily be influenced by unscrupulous elements to threaten the relative peace being enjoyed in the state,’’ the police spokesman said.
