The Kaduna State Security Council has declared that no authorised checkpoints along Kaduna-Abuja, Kaduna-Zaria and Kaduna-Birnin Gwari highways.


A statement Wednesday by the State Commissioner, Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said the Kaduna State Security Council has issued an advisory notifying citizens that there are no authorised checkpoints along the Kaduna-Abuja, Kaduna-Zaria and Kaduna-Birnin Gwari highways.


He said citizens are to note that effective immediately, there is no authorized checkpoint on these routes (to and fro) until further notice.


“Any person or group of persons observed to be manning checkpoints along these routes at any time must be considered as carrying out illegal operations, and must be treated as such.


“Road users are strictly warned NOT to show compliance with any checkpoint on these routes at this time,” the statement said.


The statement added that the State Security Council wishes to assure the public that the security agencies are conducting operations to rout the criminals and end the menace of banditry on these highways.


It also notified the public to immediately report any check points sighted to the Security Operation Centre on the following emergency lines: 09034000060 and 08170189999.


“The Kaduna State Security Council requests continuing vigilance by residents, and warns that any conduct, under whatever guise, that threatens to undermine peace and security in the state will be dealt with decisively, in accordance with the law,” the statement added.
