He said soldiers and other security agents would remain on patrol overnight in Tudun Wada district in Kaduna to ensure the maintenance of order.

Aruwan assured residents of that state their protection and advises them to shun any rumours.

“All residents of the state are requested to promote harmony and peaceful relations, avoid panic and shun rumours,” Aruwan added.

The violence in Kaduna has emanated from a clash between the army and Muslims faithful over alleged persecution of the religion's followers
