24 Hours Curfew Imposed in Kaduna
Following the twin bombs that exploded in Kaduna on Wednesday, the state government has imposed 24 hours curfew on the state.
In a press statement signed by the Director-General Media and Publicity to Kaduna Governor, Alhaji Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, was compelled to impose the curfew in order to enable security agencies restore normalcy as well as maintain law and order in the state.
Yero who condemned the bomb blast, described the acts as the height of ‘cowardice’ by those bent on creating tension in the state.
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.”
According to the statement, “The bombers are enemies of peace that have visited Kaduna 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,” Yero said.
The governor however, called on the entire citizens of Kaduna state to provide more support and useful information on suspicious movements and persons within and around their communities to security agencies.
Meanwhile, the governor commiserated with families of victims of the blasts and has directed security agencies to intensify surveillance.
