Terror attack on soft targets; KDSG advise residents to be vigilant


By; Abdull-Azeez Ahmed Kadir, Kaduna.
With Boko Haram terrorists dislodged in their strongholds in the North East and conscious of their attacks on soft targets, the Kaduna State Government has cautioned residents to be extra vigilant, remain security-conscious and alert, and report any suspicious individual or group to the authorities for prompt action to avoid anything untoward.
The government said that Churches and Mosques should continue to maintain necessary security measures, especially on major days of worship and congregation, particularly Sundays and Fridays.
This was contained by a statement issued by Samuel Aruwan, Special Assistant, Media and Publicity to Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai Friday.
“The authorities responsible for places of mass gatherings such as markets, shopping malls and parks are also directed to step up security while visitors to such places should be vigilantly careful and cooperate with the security procedures.
“As the Easter period approaches, the government requested that residents should report any and all suspicious persons and actions to the security agencies.
“In the light of the successes that the military is recording in the North-East theatre, the terrorists may be contemplating attacks on soft targets in murderous desperation.
“Therefore, residents are advised to remain vigilant and alert, and to comply with security procedures as they go about their lawful business” the statement advised.
The statement gave the following Kaduna State security hotlines 08081708671, 08064810676 and 08050366625 for easy access and passing of information to the authorities.
