Kaduna places security agencies on alert

25 March 2014, 20:27

Kaduna - The Kaduna State Government on Tuesday said it had placed security agencies on alert to avert any breakdown of law and order in the state.

The Commissioner for Information in the state, Ben Bako, made the call in a statement in Kaduna.

Bako urged the residents to be vigilant, support security agencies and report suspicious movements around them to relevant authority.

"This call became necessary to assure citizens of government's continuous vigilance on happenings within the state.

"Security agencies have been put on alert to continue monitoring situations within the state, hence the need for people to cooperate with them.

"Criminal elements who wish to create chaos and confusion are hereby warned that anyone caught will face the full wrath of the law.

"Government further wishes to assure citizens that it will continue to ensure peace within the state,'' the commissioner stated.

The warning followed recent activities of some groups in the state, which the government termed as inimical to existing peace.

There had also been various rumours about impending attacks in parts of the state which the security agencies had continuously dispelled.

Some villages in Kaura Local Government were attacked by unknown gunmen on Sunday, March 16, during which 119 people were killed and over 2 000 persons displaced.
