[ad_1]

The Kaduna State Government, on Tuesday, warned against moves by any individuals or groups to block the Kaduna-Abuja Road as a way of expressing dissatisfaction.

The State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said in a statement released to journalists in Kaduna, that such moves were unacceptable.

The commissioner explained that, while the state government was not depriving citizens of the right to express discontent, public security and safety must always be the foremost consideration.

Aruwan noted that the danger of barricading a strategic route like the Kaduna-Abuja Road was better appreciated within the context of ongoing security operations covering the route, and other areas of interest.

He urged security agencies to ensure the enforcement of the order so as to prevent any individuals or groups planning to carry out such blockage.

The commissioner said, “The Kaduna State Government wishes to remind members of the general public that any move to block the Kaduna-Abuja Road (or any routes) in order to express dissatisfaction is unacceptable and a prelude to breakdown of law and order.

“By this notice, individuals or groups planning to restrict citizens’ movements are advised to desist in the interest of public peace. While the Kaduna State Government is not depriving citizens of the right to express discontent, public security and safety must always be the foremost consideration.

“The danger of barricading a strategic route like the Kaduna-Abuja Road is better appreciated within the context of ongoing security operations covering the route, and other areas of interest.

“Keen attention must also be given to the possibility of certain gatherings degenerating into violence.

“Citizens are, therefore, strongly advised against participating in such processions, particularly those which will impact the normal socio-economic activities of other citizens, or expose lives to unnecessary danger.

“Citizens may kindly be reminded that collective security should remain the first and most important consideration at all times. Individuals, unions and other groups are, therefore, urged to note this advisory for strict compliance.”
