The Vice President, Kano Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (KACCIMA), Usman Darma, has urged Kano State Police Command to comply with court order amid its leadership crisis.

The Vice President, Kano Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (KACCIMA), Usman Darma, has urged Kano State Police Command to comply with court order amid its leadership crisis.

A Federal High Court, on March 29, 2022 restrained Kano State Government, the police and three others from giving any effect to the removal of KACHIMA leadership and subsequent appointment of a caretaker committee to steer the ship of the chamber pending the hearing and determination of motion on notice.

In a chat with journalists in Kano, yesterday, Darma appealed to other respondents in the case to comply with the court order.

The embattled vice chairman threatened to institute a contempt of proceeding case against Kano police command and four other defendants, for refusing to comply with court injunction.

Other respondents in the case include Alhaji Lawan Garo, Muntari Gashash and Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

Darma lamented how police barricaded the premises of KACHIMA, despite the court order.

He stressed: “We are law-abiding citizens. When Kano government erroneously dissolved us, we approached the court.

“Kano government lacked powers known IN law to dissolve KACCIMA leadership or to be part of KACCIMA, which has been established as a private entity over 100 years ago.”

When contacted for comments, the Command’s Spokesperson, SP Abdullahi Haruna, told reporters that the police had taken over the premises following a security report that hoodlums would attack the premises on Wednesday.

“We were there to protect life and property, based on a report that some hoodlums were planning attack the Chamber,” he claimed.

When asked whether police were served with the order of Federal High Court, Haruna insisted that the police had been deployed at the premises to maintain law and order.
