The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim K. Idris, has ordered the deployment of Police Special Forces to put an end to the renewed wave of clashes in some communities in Southern Kaduna.
The Special Forces have a mandate to ensure that they flush out perpetrators of the violence wherever they are and restore peace in the area within the shortest possible time.
A statement issued by the Commissioner of Police, Kaduna State, CP Agyole Abeh, said the Inspector General of Police further directed the aerial surveillance of the area by the Police Air Wing “so as to detect movement of criminal elements who in most cases are responsible for attack on remote farm settlements.”
According to the statement, the Inspector General of Police further reiterated the force’s commitment in ensuring security in the area.
“The Force is, therefore, determined to deal decisively with any person or group of persons who are either engaged or found to be fuelling the amber of discord among the peace loving people of Kaduna State as they will be made to face the full wrath of the law.
“Finally, the Force also advices law abiding citizens to be watchful and to report any suspicious movements or activities that are likely to tamper with the peaceful atmosphere of the environment to the police and other security agencies,” he stated.
