The Kaduna State government has established a new security outfit known as the ‘Vigilante Service’ that will assist security agencies to tackle cattle rustling and all forms of criminality in the state.

The State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, inaugurated the Board of Management of the service and other parastatals on Friday.

He explained that the new security outfit was to complement the work of the police and other security agencies in intelligence gathering and crime prevention.

He also announced the disbandment of all private vigilante groups across the state.

The Chairman of the board, Dika Anto, on his part, assured the Governor that they would live up to expectations.

The vigilante service board has representations from the army, civil defence corps, State Security Service and traditional rulers. (Channels TV)
