Kaduna State Government says the Kidnapping of Kano traders were not on the Kaduna-Abuja Road.
The State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr Samuel Aruwan disclosed this in a statement. The statement says it is imperative to issue clarification on a report emerging across several blogs and websites, alleging that an unspecified number of traders from Kano State were kidnapped on the Kaduna-Abuja Road.
According to the statement, the Federal security agencies operating on the Kaduna-Abuja Road, as at this time, have not reported any such incident.
It explains that, from all checks conducted so far by the Kaduna State Government, the alleged kidnapping occurred elsewhere in another state.
The Government as the most credible source of security updates to the citizenry and the media, aims to continue in this role to promote accountability and transparency.
The statement notes that, Government is open to further information for security collaboration on the following helplines: 09034000060, 08170189999 and email:
