The Kaduna State Police Command has ordered the immediate deployment of more Police personnel to Kajuru, Zango Kataf, Kaura and Kauru Local Government Areas of the State as part of efforts towards restoring law and order in the affected areas, as a result of the recent violence and other security challenges.
The directive was revealed in a press release made available to journalists by the Commissioner of Police, CP Umar Muri in Kaduna.
He directed that all Area Commanders and DPOs within the affected areas make adequate use of the deployed personnel to ensure the safety of lives and property as well as the full enforcement of the 24-hour curfew imposed by the Kaduna State Government.
“The Commissioner of Police wishes to commiserate with the good people of Kaduna State, particularly those who have lost their loved ones and property as a result of the crises. He further assures that the Command will do everything within its powers to ensure that peace is restored in the affected areas”.
CP Muri enjoins law-abiding citizens of the State to cooperate with the Police, Military and other law enforcement agencies as they carry out the full enforcement of the curfew amongst other measures with a view to ensuring their safety.
He however warns troublemakers in the State to desist forthwith from acts of violence and lawlessness, as the Command will not hesitate to deal decisively with any person or group of persons found in the act of disturbing the relative peace enjoyed by the good people of the State.
