Kaduna crisis: Police urges travelers to take alternative routes
Travelers who intend travelling through Kaduna have been advised by the Nigeria police to consider taking alternative routes amidst the on-going Kaduna crisis.
This was disclosed by Jimoh Moshood, police spokesperson who said this measure is imperative to forestall attack as the police is working to maintain calm in troubled area, Premium Times reports.
Moshood said this while featuring on Sunrise Daily, a programme on Channels Television Monday, October 22.
“We advise those who will be passing through Kaduna, because Kaduna is gateway to so many states to the north, top make use of alternative routes. They can by-pass Kaduna metro for now because the 24 hours curfew is only within Kaduna metro and in Kajuru local government.
“There are quite a number of alternative routes that can make use of. The announcement has been made since yesterday and we want those who have relatives who want to travel to advise them to make use of alternative routes to by-pass alternative routes.”
He added that:
“Adequate security service has been made for those who will be making use of the train service from Abuja to Kaduna and other parts of the country.”
“Before now, the announcement have been made that there is 24 hours curfew. We so much believe that as soon as normalcy is restored and evaluation of this normalcy is done, the curfew will wind down, if not completely but restricted to some places.”
