Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has said members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) otherwise known as Shi’its have to seek permission from the authorities before holding any gathering.
Ganduje said this in an interview with newsmen on the sideline of the third Edition of the Nigeria Entrepreneurs Award in Abuja on Friday night.
“As far as they continue breaking the law, the police have to come in. They cannot use they-have-the-freedom-to-do-whatever-they-want because they are crossing other people’s human rights.
“As far as we are concerned, they have to recognise the authority; they have to get permission.
“If they do not get permission, then the police will not allow them to continue the procession that they do.”
Recall that a clash between members of the sect and the police in Kano on Monday had left 8 dead and many others injured.
