Earlier, Kano police warned members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in the state against planned protests.

Legit.ng understands that the two top parties in Kano plan to hold protests simultaneously on Saturday, November 25.

This is following the recent ruling of the Appeal Court, Abuja, which declared a controversial verdict on the governorship election judgement.

However, on Saturday, the streets remained deserted as no supporters were sighted, contrary to the earlier planned agendas.

Reacting, the director-general of the Gawuna/Garo Campaign Organisation, Rabiu Suleiman Bichi,said concerns over the security of lives and properties is the paramount reason.
