Killing of 55: Kaduna Govt impose 24-hour curfew over clashes - ITREALMS

Gov. Nasri El Rufai of Kaduna State
The Kaduna State Government has imposed a 24-hour curfew on Kaduna town and environs with immediate effect, reports ITREALMS.

Confirming this on Sunday to newsmen, the Senior Special Assistant to the state governor on Media and Publicity, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, in Kaduna, said that 55 people were killed on Thursday, October 18 during a crisis at Kasuwan Magani in Kajuru Local Government Area of the state.

Also, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalled that a similar crisis in February left more than 10 people dead in Kasuwan Magani, while 65 suspects involved in the crisis were arraigned in court but the case is still ongoing.

Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, has deployed the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Zone 7, Taiwo Lakanu, to lead a Police intervention force to Kaduna to ensure that normalcy returns to the area.

The Acting DCP Jimoh Moshood, the Force Public Relations Officer, revealed this while addressing newsmen on the violence on Sunday in Abuja.

However, tension has continued to mount in some parts of Kaduna State following the abduction of the paramount ruler of the Adara people, Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State, the Agwom Adara, Mr. Maiwada Galadima and his wife, and the killing of his driver and security details by unknown gunmen.
