Kaduna-Zaria road safe for travellers – Kaduna govt.

By Mohammed Tijjani, Kaduna.

 

The Kaduna State Government says the Kaduna-Zaria road is safe, contrary to claims of insecurity on the express road.

 

The Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr Samuel Aruwan, gave the assurance in a statement in Kaduna on Wednesday.

 

He said that contrary to unfounded rumours, the road was clear and safe for travellers, urging residents to go about their normal activities without fear.

 

Aruwan said that the attention of the state government had been drawn to the widely circulated message, advising citizens not to enter or exit Zaria, alleging the presence of hundreds of bandits at Dumbi and Jaji along the route to Zaria.

 

“The Kaduna State Government wishes to firmly debunk that message, and urges citizens to disregard it completely. It is an obvious attempt to cause panic.

 

“The Kaduna State Government assures all citizens and travellers that the Kaduna-Zaria route is safe for travel.

 

“Residents are urged to go about their normal activities and pay no attention to the false report,” Aruwan said in the statement.
