Don't stop at any checkpoint along Kaduna-Abuja express way– Kaduna state government warns


The Kaduna state government has warned road users to not stop at any checkpoint along the Kaduna-Abuja expressway notorious for normal kidnapping and robbery incidents.

The state’s Commissioner for Internal Security and home Affairs, Mr Samuel Aruwan said this during a statement on Saturday in Kaduna while emphasising that the ban on security checkpoints on the road remains effective .

Aruwan noted that following complaints by citizens on the alleged checkpoints on the Kaduna-Abuja road by some security personnel, the Kaduna State Security Council had on Sept. 4, 2019 announced the prohibition of checkpoints on the road.


He said:

The Kaduna State Security Council , last year, issued the advisory, notifying citizens that there were to be no authorised checkpoint along the Kaduna-Abuja Road and other routes, to and fro.

Any person or group of persons observed to be manning checkpoints along these routes at any time must be considered as completing illegal operations, and must be treated intrinsically .

Road users are strictly warned, to not show compliance with any checkpoint on this route at this point 

He added:

By this statement, citizens are advised to report anybody violating this directive to the security operation centre on the emergency lines: 09034000060, 081701899.
