The Historical Background to the Establishment of the defunct Kano Native Authority Police.
The Historical Background to the Establishment of the defunct Kano Native Authority Police.

In 1926 the colonial officers decided to establish Native Authority police because of the growing numbers of strangers and most of those stranger's have different culture with the natives of Kano. When the colonial authority observe the growing crime rate and the Dogarawa (palace guard's) can't enforce and handle the matter in a modern way, it was seen that their is need to establish and form the Local Native Authority Police, Yan Doka.

At first, the Yan Doka of Kano only worked in two places, Kano City and Fagge (cikin Birni da Fagge).With the coming and influx of more strangers in Tudun Wada, Sabon gari,gefen Fagge,and Gwagwarwa. This development caused more increase in the crime rate at those newly settlement's. After the second world war, the discharged soldiers who are not citizens and other Nigerians from other states were employed by the Kano Native Authority as yan doka.

The names of the three white men that were saddled with responsibility to train them include; Major Dabodha, Captain De-Courshirly (who is better known by the Kanawa as Captain Chali, because of his friendliness) and Major Sharp, who is the longest serving white man in Native Authority police, he served with Kano N.A until his retirement.
