Sallah: Kaduna CP deploys 10,000 special forces to check attacks


The Kaduna Police Command on Saturday said it has deployed 10,000 officers and men across the state to forestall any breakdown of laws and order, during and after the festive period.

This was contained in a statement by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Muhammed Jalige.

Jalige said the deployment is drawn from the conventional, logistics and tactical manpower of the Command and is aimed at ensuring that the festivities are observed hitch-free in the state.

He said the over ten thousand (10,000) personnel deployment is to cover worship centres, critical national infrastructures, markets, social and recreational centres, major highways and other public spaces

He said the Commissioner of Police, Kaduna Command, CP Yekini A. Ayoku has assured members of the general public that their safety and security are of paramount importance to the Command.

He equally urged them to warn their wards against the use of fireworks (Knock-out) as violators of this will be severely dealt with under extant laws.

“The Command has guaranteed all that it has dominated public spaces and urged them to go about their lawful activities without fear of any intimidation or harassment from any quarter and to promptly report any suspicious object(s) or person(s) through the designated Command’s emergency contacts,” he said

The CP also used the opportunity to felicitate with Muslim faithful in the state for the successful completion of this year’s Ramadan fasting and wished them a happy Sallah celebration.
