Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state, in a statement, has called for calm, while warning those trying to cause trouble in the state, using the Biafra agitations in the South-East as a platform, to desist from their evil act.

Sun Newspapers reports that the Kaduna state Governor, through his media aide, Samuel Aruwan said “The Kaduna State Government has appealed to all residents of the state to remain calm, and continue with their lawful activities.

“Following reports of the recent violent agitations in parts of the South-East zone, the government urges our communities to shun any and every attempt at provocation. It is clear that some elements in the polity wish to divide our people, and to profit from discord.”

He referred to those planning to cause violence in Kaduna state as losers, adding that they will not escape justice.

“Let us all say ‘Never Again’ to the profiteers of strife, whose bread is buttered by communal and religious violence. Let us keep the peace, promote harmony and uphold each other in our God-given common humanity,” the Governor said.
