Kaduna State Government has advise citizens across the state, for heightened alertness to the threat of explosive devices planted in public places by terrorists.
This follows sustained assessments by security agencies, and the possibility of terrorists looking to harm citizens, by discreetly placing explosives in public facilities such as schools, hospitals, hotels, bars, entertainment centres, restaurants, parks, major roads and places of worship.
A statement by the commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs Samuel Aruwan said agencies are working to ensure that no harm or destruction comes to residents and facilities.
Citizens are however urged to be alive to the threat, and to remain watchful for suspicious persons loitering, or packages seemingly abandoned in strategic places.
He advised Quarry operators to enhance security on their sites, and to ensure that explosive materials are not readily accessible to be carted away for criminal purposes. Sites will be inspected for compliance.
