Kaduna State government has ban protests related to religious activity throughout the State with immediate effect.

In a statement by the State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr Samuel Aruwan says the ban follows consultation with security agencies under the umbrella of Kaduna State Security Council.

He said, Governor Nasiru El-Rufai who has been briefed on the development, charged security agencies to ensure strict enforcement of the ban against any form of religious protest in the State.

Mr Samuel Aruwan also stressed that, Governor Elrufai also charged religious leaders, community leaders and traditional rulers throughout the State to complement the efforts of government and security agencies towards the maintenance of peace and stability.

According to him, Security agencies had resolved that, any attempt by individuals or groups to disrupt the peace and stability of the State would not be condoned.

He implored Citizens to remain calm as they go about their lawful pursuits and to immediately report any such activity or security concern to the Kaduna State Security Operations Room, on 09034000060 and 08170189999.
