He said: “In view of the court trial of Ibrahim El-Zakzaky on Wednesday November 7, the peace loving and law abiding people of Kaduna State are to note that adequate security has been put in place for a hitch-free court appearance.
“Therefore, members of the public are advised to remain calm and not to be apprehensive where they observe unusual number of security personnel in town.
“As part of the strategy put in place for a smooth process of the court trial, there will be traffic diversion in the following areas during the court session: “Independence Way, Bida Road and all other roads leading to Ibrahim Taiwo Road, Kaduna.
“The command wishes to notify the general public to exercise more security consciousness as they go about their daily chores and other lawful businesses.”
