The Kano State Government has expressed concern over the violent clash between members of Shiah sect and some group of individuals individuals in the state.

It said the clash occurred because of flagrant disregard to an earlier ban by the police on public procession in the state.

The Commissioner for Information,Malam Muhammad Garba, made this known in a statement to newsmen in Kano on Saturday.

“This unfortunate violation of police order by the Shiites and taking law into their hands constitute criminal breach of law and order and will not be condoned ‎henceforth.‎

‎“The government, therefore, reminds the group and the general public of the ban of any form of public procession in whatever guise without prior authorization,” Garba said.

He said that the government would deal with any person, group, organization or individuals that violate this order.

According to him, this is part of government's effort to ensure maximum security of lives and property and maintenance of law and order in the state.

‎He then advised members of the Shiah group and the general public to be law-abiding and live peacefully with one another.
