The Kaduna State Security Council has issued an advisory, notifying citizens that there are no authorised security checkpoints along the Kaduna-Abuja, Kaduna-Zaria and Kaduna-Birnin-Gwari highways.

In a statement on Wednesday, the state’s Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said any person or group of persons observed to be manning checkpoints along these routes at any time must be considered as carrying out illegal operations, and must be treated as such.

He said: “Road users are strictly warned NOT to show compliance with any checkpoint on these routes at this time.

“The State Security Council wishes to assure the public that the security agencies are conducting operations to rout the criminals and end the menace of banditry on these highways.

“The public should immediately report any checkpoints sighted to the Security Operation Centre on the following emergency lines:  09034000060, 08170189999

“The  Kaduna State Security Council requests continuing vigilance by residents, and warns that any conduct, under whatever guise, that threatens to undermine peace and security in the state will be dealt with decisively, in accordance with the law,” the commissioner noted.
