The Kaduna State Peace Commission has called for restrain to the frequent killing of human lives and destruction of property worth hundreds of millions.
A statement issued by the Chief Executive Officer of the commission, Priscilla Ankut Esq said the sad incident that happened on 18th October 2018 at around 5.30pm was unfortunate.
The group said the Peace and Security of Kasuwan Magani town in Kajuru Local Government of Kaduna State was disturbed by the activities of some hoodlums who caused pandemonium in the market area.
“The action of the hoodlums triggered fear and anxiety that further led to threat to peace involving looting of properties and attempts to transform the skirmishes into ethno-religious disturbances.”
“The Kaduna State Peace Commission conveys its deepest sympathy to all those that were affected in one way or the other by the violence. The Commission is appealing to all the people of the area to remain calm, respect law and order and refrain from all actions that will lead to violence and insecurity.”
“Already, the Kaduna State Government and the Security Agencies have taken appropriate measures to prevent further breakdown of law and order, and to protect lives and property. The general public is urged to work with the Government and the security agencies, and to promptly report any suspicious actions that will threaten peace and security,” the statement added.
