Following the Tuesday assault on the convoy of the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, a 24-hour curfew has been imposed on three native authorities areas in Kaduna State. The native authorities areas are Zangon-Kataf, Kaura and Jema’a.
The Kaduna State Safety Council mentioned it took the step primarily based on credible intelligence about dangers to lives and property within the affected areas.
That is simply because the governor appealed for calm over the assault on him, urging residents not to reply to the motion by demonstrators in Kafanchan, Jema’a Native Authorities Space on Tuesday.
El-Rufai’s Particular Assistant on Media and Publicity, Samuel Aruwan, mentioned in a press release that the choice to impose curfew on the three LGs was taken by the State Safety Council shortly after its assembly on Wednesday.
The spokesman added that the council additionally reaffirmed the ban on all processions and illegal meeting all through the state.
The assembly, chaired by El-Rufai, the assertion added, was attended by the Deputy Governor, Barnabas Yusuf-Bala; Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, Agyole Abeh; and Director DSS, Mohammed Wakili; amongst others.
The governor and his entourage have been reportedly pelted with stones and among the automobiles have been broken after the governor addressed some demonstrators after the Kaduna State Safety Council assembly.===================================
