Governor of Kaduna State, Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, has 24 imposed hours curfew on Kaduna metropolis with immediate effect, to enable security agencies restore normalcy following this afternoon’s twin suicide bomb attacks that claimed scores of lives.

This was announced in a statement signed by his Director General, Media and Publicity, Malam Ahmed Maiyaki. The governor said the blasts were clear manifestation of the resolve by ‘agents of darkness’ to soak the land with blood of innocent people for no just cause.

He said “enemies of peace have visited us with their ungodly venom of wanton destruction of human lives. This blast, coming in the Holy Month of Ramadan is a clear indication that those behind the act have no iota of fear of God as they have none for the sanctity of human life.

Governor Yero said despite the success recorded in improvement of security in Kaduna State, it is obvious that more still needs to be done to ensure safety of our people at all times and in all places.

He therefore calls on people in the State to see such unwarranted attacks on innocent people across the State as aggression by evil against good that must be collectively condemned by all.

The Governor therefore urges the entire people in the State to be more vigilant with happenings around them and to also avoid unnecessary crowded areas.

Governor Yero said “the time has come for us to eschew all our differences and confront these brazen attacks as united people.

“Those behind these attacks have no regards for whatever diversity as their victims cut across all ethnic and religious divides. It is a responsibility on all of us to unite against this common enemy.”

Yero therefore called on the entire citizens of Kaduna State to provide more support to security agencies by providing useful information on suspicious movements and persons within and around their communities.

The Governor also commiserates with families of victims of the blasts and has directed security agencies to intensify surveillance while they pursue perpetrators of the blast.
