Update On Security Situation In Kaduna State


A select committee of the Kaduna State Security Council met this morning. The heads of the security agencies in Kaduna State and senior government officials, led by Governor Nasir El-Rufai, reviewed the security situation in the state.

The council sympathized with residents on the inconvenience associated with the curfew, saying it was imposed to save lives and is under constant review.

The Security Council noted the substantial compliance with the curfew by residents and welcomed the atmosphere of calm largely prevailing in the areas under curfew, as well as across the state.

The Security Council commended residents for refusing to allow criminal elements to divide our communities and sow chaos. It urged Kaduna residents to continue to cooperate with the security agencies, to ensure that those who want a peaceful, law-governed society prevail over criminals who prefer chaos and anarchy.

Kachia Curfew relaxed

The Security Council noted with gratitude the exemplary conduct of the people of Kachia who have remained peaceful while mourning the loss of a much revered monarch. In recognition of this positive contribution to harmony, the Security Council has directed that the curfew in Kachia be relaxed immediately, today, Saturday, 27th October 2018.

Residents of Kachia are free to go about their legitimate business from now till 5pm today. From tomorrow, Sunday, 28th October 2018, Kachia residents are also free to move from 6am to 5pm daily.
