Rabiu Kwankwaso, the former governor of Kano State, had his residence sealed off by combat-ready policemen on Tuesday, August 23, 2016, in Kano.
The residence, located at Lugard Road, is a few minutes-drive away from the Kano Government House.
Also, Kwankwaso’s Lodge Road residence, which serves as the headquarters of Kwankwasiyya Movement, was sealed up over alleged plan by the former governor to conduct mass wedding, Punch reports.
The Kano State Police Command confirmed the development.
“We have directed our men to seal the residence, following an intelligent report that there is plan to conduct mass wedding at the house,” the Police Public Relations officer, DSP Magaji Majia, said.
“Police did not issue permit for any mass wedding at the residence.”
However, a Kwankwasiyya Movement insider said that “the mass wedding was conducted on Monday secretly, with only the bride and groom and next of kin in attendance, including some selected Islamic scholars.”
