Abdullahi Abbas, the Kano State Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, has called for the arrest of Rabiu Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano State, claiming he poses a threat to the security of the state.

Abbas was responding to Kwankwaso's allegations that the former government bred Boko Haram terrorists and misled the Federal Government in order to destabilise the state.

Kwankwaso made the alleged statement during his speech at the 85-kilometer road construction flag-off in his hometown of Madobi.

Abbas urged security agencies to arrest the senator so that he could disclose the names of people he saw as enemies of the state.

He also stated that no amount of threats by Kwankwaso could intimidate the federal government.

The chairman declared that the New Nigeria People's Party (NNPP) has dark motivations for inciting violence in Kano.

“Kwankwaso for a long time has been a security threat to Kano and the nation in view of his antecedents. He runs a movement in which he has been widely accused of recruiting youth, mostly school dropouts to unleash terror on the people in the state,” he alleged.

Abbas further said that after the 'forceful' enthronement of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as Emir, hundreds of weapon-wielding thugs have been recruited and stationed inside the Emir's palace, where all kinds of illegal drugs are freely peddled, posing a threat to those within and around.
