Kaduna govt. says ban on security checkpoints on Kaduna-Abuja road still in force

The Kaduna State Government says the ban on security checkpoints along the Kaduna-Abuja road is still in force.

 

Mr Samuel Aruwan, Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, said this in a statement on Saturday in Kaduna.

 

He said that following the people’s complaints about the menace of some security personnel at the checkpoints on the Kaduna-Abuja road, the Kaduna State Security Council, on Sept. 4, 2019, announced the prohibition of checkpoints on the road.

 

“The Kaduna State Security Council, last year, issued the advisory, notifying citizens that there would be no authorised checkpoint along the Kaduna-Abuja Road and other routes, to and fro.

 

“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 this route at this time.

 

“By this statement, citizens are advised to report anybody violating this directive to the security operation centre through these emergency lines: 09034000060, 08170189999,’’ he said.
