The Kaduna State Government has issued a security alert, urges all residents to remain security-conscious and alert as the Easter period approaches.

A government statement issued by Samuel Aruwan, Special Assistant (Media and Publicity) to Governor Nasir el-Rufai, said that churches and mosques in the state “shall continue to maintain necessary security measures, especially on major days of worship and congregation, particularly Sundays and Fridays.”

“The authorities responsible for places of mass gatherings such as markets, shopping malls and parks are also directed to step up security while visitors to such places should be vigilantly careful and cooperate with the security procedures,” the statement said, adding:

“As the Easter period approaches, the government requested that residents should report any and all suspicious persons and actions to the security agencies.

“In the light of the successes that the military is recording in the North-East theatre, the terrorists may be contemplating attacks on soft targets in murderous desperation.

“Therefore, residents are advised to remain vigilant and alert, and to comply with security procedures as they go about their lawful business.

“The Kaduna State security hotlines 08081708671, 08064810676 and 08050366625.”
