SOUTHERN KADUNA: We Have Started Installing CCTVs To Monitor Perpetrators -El-Rufai to CAN
In a bid to stop the killings in Southern Kaduna, The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai has said that his administration has started installing CCTV’s in local governments at the Southern part of Kaduna in order to monitor bandits
The state Governor disclosed this in a statement he released on Monday, 17 while meeting with the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Revd. Supo Ayokunle, and other CAN leaders.
The Governor noted that he is deep concern about the Southern Kaduna killings and he is employing every necessary process to ensure that the crisis ends in the shortest time range.
The statement reads in part;
“Since last month, the state government and security agencies have been working to contain an upsurge in violence and needless killings in parts of the state. We are deeply saddened by the loss of lives in a totally unnecessary frenzy of communal attacks, reprisals, and revenge.
“While we mourn the dead, our immediate focus remains to stop the cycle of attacks and reprisals. We remain committed to ending the legacy of violence that has blighted the state for 40 years, needlessly taken many lives, and curtailed the life chances of others.
“We will continue to support the security agencies to restore calm in the affected communities. Over the last five years, we have invested heavily in the security sector. We have consistently provided vehicles and other logistics support to the security agencies that are deployed in the state.
“We are also addressing the technology side of security, through the procurement of drones, the award of contracts to install CCTVs in phases in Kaduna, Kafanchan and Zaria metropolitan areas, build a command and control center and establish a forensic laboratory.”
