Kaduna State Government says credible intelligence reports have revealed plans by some politicians to sponsor and instigate their followers toward unruly public actions.
The Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, in a statement on Thursday, said that these actions include storming the streets in a manner that could lead to a breakdown of law and order in the State.
“In view of these reports, the Government continues to monitor the situation closely, in tandem with security agencies.
“It must be emphasized that persons or groups who engage in actions which could lead to civil unrest, threat to life and destruction of property will not be spared as the full weight of the law will be applied accordingly,” he intoned.
The State government maintained that the directive on suspending street protests or processions remains in place.
Meanwhile, parents, guardians, and community leaders are also advised to educate their wards against being used by persons who seek to prey on vulnerable emotions and volatile atmospheres to generate chaos.
