The Kaduna State Security Council has warned against blockage of public roads and harassment of innocent citizens by persons conducting protests.

This follows the blockage of the Gonin Gora axis of the Kaduna-Abuja Road by some protesters on Thursday morning, in response to reports of a bandit attack in Unguwan Auta of Gonin Gora general area, Chikun LGA, thus denying commuters access through the route.

A press statement signed by Samuel Aruwa, the Overseeing Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Kaduna State, and made available to DisclosureNews, disclosed that members of the Security Council which comprise the Commissioner of Police, Audu Ali, Director of Department of State Services, Abdul Adamu Eneche, Garrison Commander, One Division Nigerian Army, Brigadier General Muhammad Kana, and the Overseeing Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, in the company of security forces, dismantled the road blocks erected and subsequently opened up the road for use by motorists.

The members of the Kaduna State Security Council, the statement further noted, while interacting with community leaders, expressed dissatisfaction with the menace of blocking roads, a situation which infringes on the rights of citizens and travelers using these roads and other public utilities.

”As of the time of this security update, citizens and motorists are plying the Gonin Gora axis of Kaduna-Abuja Road without obstruction, ” the statement added.
