Kaduna – The Kaduna State Government has imposed a 24-hour curfew on
Kachia Local Government Area and its environment.
The Director-General on Media and Publicity to the Governor,Ahmed Maiyaki,
who announced this, said the curfew became imperative following crisis in the
area which led to the burning of various structures including churches and
mosques on Sunday.
Gov. Mukhtar Yero had earlier in a statement issued by Maiyaki, called
on the people to shun attempt to create misunderstanding and cause
confusion in the state.
He said that government was already working with all security
agencies to ensure the protection of life and property of the people.
“Government will not fold its arms and allow `enemies of peace' to cause
mayhem in our state.
“I call on all law-abiding citizens to go about their businesses without
fear of intimidation as security forces have been directed to deal decisively
with trouble makers.
The governor further urged the people in the state to continue to coexist
peacefully, irrespective of diversities.
Yero said that differences in tribe or religion should not affect the
common aspirations of the people to live in peace and tranquility.
“The state government will continue to pursue its peace building agenda and
will not rest on its oars until Kaduna is returned to its pre-crises era when
all the people lived harmoniously."
Yero also urged them to support the ongoing peace building process in the
state and contribute their quota toward the goal. -
