Ahead of tomorrow’s resumed trial of the embattled leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria , Sheikh Ibrahim El- Zakzaky by a Kaduna State high court , the state police command has said that it will deal decisively with any person or group of persons who deliberately attempt to violate the ban on all forms of processions and demonstrations in across the state.

A statement by the Command’s public relations officer, DSP Yakubu Sabo, explains that adequate security has been put in place for a hitch-free court appearance.

As part of the strategy put in place for a smooth process of the court trial, the police said there will be traffic diversion in some areas during the court session including Independence way, Bida Road and All other roads leading to Ibrahim Taiwo Road where the court is located.

The statement advises the residents to remain calm and not to be apprehensive where they observe unusual number of security personnel in town.

It also advises residents to exercise more security consciousness as they go about their lawful businesses by being extra vigilant of their environment, persons around them, and activities of suspicious persons, so as to prevent miscreants from disturbing the peace of the State.
