The Kaduna state police command has said that it has deployed men to the troubled Southern Kaduna region.

This is coming after the Vicar-General of the Catholic Archdiocese of Kafanchan, Ibrahim Yakubu said over 800 lives have been lost.

Speaking about Yakubu’s claim, the Kaduna state police commissioner, Agyole Abeh said “Everybody has the freedom to say what he wants to say, but as far as I am concerned, I have never heard of such figures they are calling. It is not true and not close to what the cleric is saying.”
