El-Rufai says the move is to help
protect the state from attacks its
southern parts where there have been
killings recently
President Buhari has told Kaduna governor El

Rufai that he can go ahead with his

Christmas Day curfew.

President Muhammadu Buhari has

supproted the move by Kaduna state

governor Nasir El-Rufai to place a

curfew on the northern state during

Christmas Day celebrations.

New Telegraph reports that the

president confirmed his support when

El-Rufai visited the presidential villa

in Abuja on Thursday, December 22.
El-Rufai confirmed the president's

backing while speaking with state

house correspondents after the

meeting.

He said:

I came to brief the President about

the situation in Southern Kaduna;

what happened in the last few

days, and outlined to him the

measures we have been taking as a

state government with the support

of the Nigerian Army, the Nigerian

Police and the Department of State

Security.

The President has given us

unqualified support to stabilize the

state and bring all those

responsible for the violation of our

laws to justice.

So, we have the full support of the

President to move on and we are

quite confident that things will

return to normal very soon.

Recall that Kaduna state on

Wednesday, December 21 imposed a

24-hour curfew on three local

government areas namely Zangon-

Kataf, Kaura and Jema'a as a measure

to protect lives and properties in

southern part of the state.

Also, the Kaduna State Security

Council placed a ban on processions

and unlawful assembly in any parts of

the state.

El-Rufai confirmed the development

to state house correspondents thus:

Well, we have curfew even on

Christmas day but it is for 12

hours. People will be able to get

out in the morning at 6am and be

back at 6pm. It is because of the

security situation.

I don't think the state government

should be blamed. Those

responsible for the violence that

broke out in those parts of the

state should be held responsible

for that.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian Army has

warned the public to be weary of

some Boko Haram terrorist who could

be fleeing from the northeast to other

parts of the country to escape military

operation in Sambisa forest.
