Kaduna-Zaria road is safe, says Aruwan

NEWS DIGEST – The Kaduna State Government on Wednesday said the Kaduna- Zaria road was safe, contrary to claims of insecurity on the express road.

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

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

Mr Aruwan said the attention of KDSG had been drawn to the widely circulated message, advising citizens not to enter or exit Zaria, and also 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 travelers 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,” Mr Aruwan said.
