The lockdown in Kaduna state has been relaxed in 21 local government areas (LGA’S), of Kaduna, by the Kaduna State Government but said Chikun and Kaduna South Local Government Areas will remain on a 24-hour lockdown.
The Kaduna state Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr Samuel Aruwan, disclosed this in a statement on Monday in Kaduna. Aruwan said people across the 21 LGAs are free to go about their lawful businesses from 6am to 4pm with effect from Tuesday Oct. 27. According to Aruwan, the security assessment in Chikun and Kaduna South LGAs showed that criminal attempts to violate life and property still persist.
“Residents of these two local government areas are advised to remain in their homes as efforts to normalise the situation continues. Markets, offices and commercial centres, hotels and recreation centres in the two LGAs are to remain closed during the 24-hour curfew.
“Social and mass gatherings are also prohibited in these areas until further notice. Essential services, hospitals and medical facilities are expected to open and offer services during this period.”
The Kaduna state government urged persons with useful information on those who engage in looting to call the Kaduna State Security Operations Room on 09034000060 and 08170189999, Aruwan stated.
