The Kaduna State Police Command has warned against a repeated attack on members of the Shiites Islamic movement in the state, even as two members of the group were feared killed and 10 others wounded as they tried to rebuild their demolished school near Zango road, Tudun Wada in Kaduna South Local Government Area of the state.

A statement signed by the command’s spokesperson ASP Aliyu Usman on Saturday in Kaduna, warned the youths and the general public to desist from taking laws into their hands as any attempt or repeat of the above mentioned unruly behaviour will be visited with the full wrath of the law.

The statement reads: “The Kaduna State Command has observed that some members of the public have become lawless and act in manners detrimental to law and order and in total disregard to rights of other citizens.

“The Commissioner of Police, Kaduna State Command hereby reminds the general public that the maintenance of law and order will not be compromised and anybody found committing acts detrimental to the peace of the society will be dealt with accordingly.”

The Police Command warned the public to desist from taking laws into their hands as any attempt or repeat of the above mentioned unruly behaviours will be visited with the full wrath of the law.

Some shops and houses of Shiite members in Tudun Wada, Ungwan Muazu and Kabala West area were destroyed by irate youths.

One of the victims, a media practitioner who pleaded for anonymity told our reporter that his residence in Ungwan Muazu was destroyed.

“The thugs destroyed my house, but I am lucky my family and I were not at home then,” he said.
