The Kaduna state government has asked its residents to stay away from violence as all security agencies in the state are on “high alert’  to contain threats to law and order. 

TheCable reported that results from 19 of the 23 LGAs of the state were announced on Sunday before the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) adjourned the collation. 

Upon resumption, the remaining 4 are expected to be announced on Monday afternoon. 

In a statement on Monday by Samuel Aruwan, the commissioner for internal security, the state government had received intelligence indicating plans by some individuals and groups to instigate violence in Kaduna metropolis and other major centres in the state. 


“Security agencies are conducting diligent investigations into these reports. Individuals and groups found to be behind such activities will be vigorously prosecuted,” Aruwan said. 

“It is important to reiterate that street protests remain strictly prohibited to prevent any possible breakdown of law and order. 

“Government appeals to citizens to volunteer information on any activity which may pose a threat to public peace, law and order via these help lines: 09034000060 08170189999.”
