Kaduna state government confirm renewed attacks in Southern Kaduna , orders Army Commander, Police Commisioner to relocate to affected areas

The Kaduna State Government has confirmed reports of renewed attacks in some villages in Southern Kaduna. The state governor Nasir El-Rufai in a press statement released by his media aide, Samuel Aruwan, says unknown gunmen in a coordinated attack invaded Bakin Kogi, Kaninkon Village in Jemaa Local Government Area in the State on Sunday 19th February, 2017 at about 5:30pm.

They were repulsed by Operation Yaki Surveillance Patrol Teams and Operation Harmony Patrol Teams. Further attacks were recorded today in Kaura local government. Fatalities were recorded and some houses were burnt in the attacks.

“I have been in touch with the security agencies and I have been studiously following the situation in Jema’a and Kaura Local Government Areas over the unfortunate attacks. I want to, first of all, extend my heartfelt condolences to the families and relations that lost their loved ones and properties in these unfortunate attacks. 
My prayers and support equally goes to citizens that sustained injuries and are traumatised by what they witnessed. This is clearly a wicked, evil and devilish act being perpetrated by enemies of peace and humanity. I also wish to commend our gallant soldiers and police personnel, who are defending our communities. 
The Kaduna State Government will continue to work assiduously with security agencies towards the protection of life and property” he said.
He has ordered the Garrison Commander of the 1 Division of the Nigerian Army Brigadier-General Ismaila Isa and the state’s Commissioner of Police, CP Agyole Abeh, to relocate to Southern part of the state 

Ekiti state governor Ayo Fayose, Rivers state governor Nyesom Wike, Akwa Ibom state governor Emmanuel Udom, Bode George and other PDP chieftains, attended the party's stakeholder meeting which took place at Asokoro in Abuja Sunday afternoon.
The meeting which was earlier scheduled to hold at the International Conference Center ICC, was moved to Asokoro after some police officers stormed ICC and prevented the politicians from gaining access into the venue.

The stakeholders had the meeting to deliberate on last Friday's judgment by the Port Harcourt Court of Appeal affirming Ali Modu Sheriff as the authentic national chairman of the party.
