Kaduna violence: IGP vows to end violence in Nigeria

The Acting Inspector General of Police, MD Abubakar on Sunday said that the police will do everything “humanly and operationally possible” to end the spate of violence in Nigeria.

In a statement signed by the Deputy Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, the IGP appealed to residents in Kaduna state to remain calm while efforts are being made by the government and security agencies to find a permanent solution to the persistent violence.
“Two wrongs can never make a right,” he said.

The Police boss warned “criminal elements who have been carrying out campaigns of violence on innocent Nigerians and institutions to desist forthwith, as the Police and other law enforcement agencies will not sit back idly and watch them put the life of innocent citizens at jeopardy.”
He also ordered a “massive deployment of both Conventional and Anti-Riot Police Units across every nook and cranny of the State (including the highways).

“In addition, the Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of ‘A’ Department, DIG Suleiman D. Fakai, who is also the DIG coordinating Police operations in North-West Nigeria, is already in Kaduna where he is personally coordinating Police operations.

Five separate incidents of explosions carried out by unknown bombers occurred in Kaduna State. The first incident took place at about 8:35am at ECWA Church Wusasa, Zaria, the second incident at about 8:45am at Christ the King Catholic Church Sabo-Gari, Zaria, while the third incident occurred at Shalom Church Kakuri, Kaduna at about 9:30am.

The police authority put the total number of people killed by these multiple blast at 16 while emergency agency officials said the number could be more than 34.

Some parts of the State recorded a momentary breakdown of law and order as angry youths took to the streets to protest the unfortunate attacks on the churches. The Police and other security agencies have however restored normalcy in the affected areas.

Meanwhile the State Government has declared a 24-hour curfew to enable security agencies assess the situation thoroughly with a view to finding a lasting solution.

    Mr. IGP, you are right. Two wrongs can never make a right. Here is a suggestion. One dead terrorist and one spared life of the innocent will absolutely make a right. Now, go do your job.

    On three occations, In Jos, Bauchi and Gombe, Christians were caught trying to bomb Churches! In these three incidence if the Christians succeeded, the reaction, perception and conclution will be that “Muslims are at it again”. But when it failed we saw how CAN tried in vain to protect its members. Going into conclution, and calling Islam or Muslims evil is the most unwise thing to do.The prayer is may ALLAH expose the architects of this mayhem.
