The police in Sokoto have banned
indefinitely all forms of processions by all religious groups across the 23
local government areas of the state.
This is contained in a statement
by the spokesman of the state police command, El-Mustapha Sani, and issued to
the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Sokoto on Friday.
