Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai will on Monday evening address the world on the crises in the state.

News of the governor’s activities related to the security situation in the state was contained in a series of tweets on his official handle.

Earlier on Monday, the Governor conducted an assessment tour round the state following the violence that took place over the past few days.

He also met with security agencies on Monday to assess the situation, just as he is set to address residents via a state broadcast at 8pm.

In the early hours of Monday, he went round the areas where hoodlums had attacked persons and destroyed properties.

Emphasising that the state government had not relaxed the 24-hour curfew declared in the state on Sunday, residents were urged to access updates and information only from authorised, official government channels.

The governor visited Kujama, Chikun Local Government, Bakin Ruwa along the Bypass and Kabala West area to reassure residents.

He urged them to remain calm, noting that security agencies have the situation under control.
