The Commissioner of Police Kaduna State, Umar Muri, has ordered the immediate deployment of more Police personnel to Kajuru, Zango Kataf, Kaura and Kauru Local Government Areas of the state.

The spokesman of the command, Mohammed Jalige, stated this in a statement he made available to journalists on Friday.

He said that the CP ordered the deployment as part of his efforts to restore law and order into  the areas  following recent violence and other security challenges there.

According to the statement, the commissioner, therefore, directed all Area Commanders and DPOs within the affected areas to make adequate use of the deployed personnel in ensuring the safety of lives and properties of people there  as well as the full enforcement of the 24-hourly curfew imposed by the Kaduna State Government.

The command also commiserated with the people of Kaduna State, particularly, those who have lost loved ones and property as a result of the crises.

He also assured them that the command would do everything within its powers to ensure that peace was restored in the affected areas.

Mr Muri advised all law abiding citizens in the state to cooperate with the law enforcement agencies as they carried out the full enforcement of the curfew  alongside other measures with a view to ensuring their safety.

He, however,warned troublemakers to desist forthwith from acts of violence and lawlessness.

He said that the command would not hesitate to deal decisively with any person or group of persons found working against peace in the state.
