NIGERIA Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC), Kaduna State Command has deployed 3000 personnel to enforce the restrictions on movement in the state and advised residents to obey the lockdown order or risk sanctions.

He said that anyone who violates the lockdown order by embarking on intra or interstate movement would face the wrath of the law.

He said that the command’s Head of Operations, Area Commanders, and Divisional Officers have been fully mobilised to curtail the influx of people into the state to prevent community spread of Coronavirus.
H urged Muslims to use the Eid-el-Fitri period to pray for Nigeria especially against challenges of terrorism and insurgency, banditry, cattle rustling, ethnic militia, and the end to the novel Coronavirus.
“On the unfortunate incidents of killings and banditry in parts of the state, the Command assures that efforts are being intensified to apprehend those behind it.
“Perpetrators of the dastardly acts must desist from it in order to pave way for peace and development, as without peace there cannot be development,” Dutsinma said.
