The Kaduna State government on Saturday said 32 people had been arrested in connection with the renewed violence in Kaduna metropolis on Friday.

Samuel Aruwan, senior special assistant to the governor on media and publicity,

announced this in a statement in Kaduna on Saturday.

 

He said that the number of arrested persons over the renewed disturbances

was given by the police at the state’s Security Council meeting, adding that

these persons will be investigated and prosecuted.

 

Mr Aruwan also said that within the areas covered by the curfew,

security agencies thwarted attempts to destroy places of worship

in Kawo and Hayin Banki.

 

It was also reported that one person was killed in Kasuwan Magani and

another arrested with a weapon overnight while attempting to burn

down the market there.

 

He announced that the government has relaxed the curfew in Kachia,

allowing residents free movement from 6a.m. to 5p.m. daily.

 

The Security Council noted with gratitude the exemplary conduct of

the people of Kachia who have remained peaceful while mourning the

loss of a much-revered monarch.

 

In recognition of this positive contribution to harmony, the Security

Council has directed that the curfew in Kachia be relaxed immediately,

today, Saturday, 27th October, 2018.

 

He added that the council sympathised with residents over the inconveniences

associated with the curfew, saying that it was imposed to save lives and

was under constant review. READ MORE: El Rufai Present Kaduna Budget

residents and welcomed the atmosphere of calm largely prevailing in the

areas under curfew as well as across the state.

 

The Council commended residents for refusing to allow criminal elements to

divide our communities and sow chaos.

 

It urged Kaduna residents to continue to cooperate with the security agencies

to ensure that those who want a peaceful, law-governed society prevail over

criminals who prefer chaos and anarchy.
