Officers of the Kano State Police Command have been slammed by the International Press Centre (IPC) Centre for Safety and Protection of Journalists (I-CSPJ) after the Wednesday attack on journalists covering the Kano State Governorship Election petition tribunal.

Police officers at the venue of the tribunal harrassed Salim Umar Ibrahim of Daily Trust and BBC Hausa Reporter, Zahraddeen Lawal and destroyed their equipment.

Press Freedom Officer at I-CSPJ, Melody Akinjiyan, in a statement quoted the Executive Director of IPC, Mr Lanre Arogundade, as saying that the unwarranted attacks on journalists on legitimate duty are dangerous to the nation’s democracy and a major threat to press freedom.
