Governor of Kaduna State, Dr. Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, has called on citizens resident in Kafanchan in Jema’a Local Government Area and environs to remain calm and law abiding as government is doing all within its powers to sustain peace in the entire state.

He made the call last night as a 24-hour curfew came in force in the area in a bid to restore calm after soldiers shot dead two youths as protesters sought to force the soldiers to release some Fulanis caught with weapons for jungle justice. There have been sporadic killings in the area blamed on Fulani herdsmen.

A statement signed by the Director General Media and Publicity to the Governor, Ahmed Maiyaki, called on people to remain calm and desist from taking the laws into their hands to avoid throwing the state into confusion and anarchy.

Governor Yero said security operatives have intensified surveillance across the state aimed at foiling any attempt by miscreants and criminals to attack innocent citizens in the area.

He therefore called on all law-abiding citizens to cooperate with government and the security agencies in the on-going push to rid the state of hoodlums and evil doers.

“This is not the time for people to obstruct the course of justice by attempting to perpetrate barbaric acts of jungle justice. Government and indeed security forces will never fold their arms and allow people take laws into their own hands,” the statement said, adding:

“We want to assure the entire people of Kaduna State that in our resolve to end the spate of unwarranted attacks on innocent citizens, Government will continue to work with security agencies to ensure that those behind the various killings in the state are brought to justice. This will be vigorously pursued without fear or favour.”

Yero called on the entire people of Kaduna State to remain calm and peaceful while they go about their lawful businesses. He assured people in the state of government’s commitment to safeguarding their lives and property.
