By Lola Seriki-Idahosa, Kaduna Tracereporters –The Kaduna State Government is aware of reports being circulated mainly on WhatsApp groups, detailing alleged shooting and kidnapping on the Bishini corridor of the Kaduja-Abuja Road at 9PM on Wednesday 12th June 2024.

In a press statement Signed by Samuel Aruwan, Overseeing Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Kaduna State, said as of this moment, 5:30pm, Thursday 13th June 2024, all traditional rulers, community leaders and security forces from within and around Katari and Bishini general areas have not confirmed such an incident. In the same vein, physical tours and painstaking checks with credible human intelligence sources have not provided confirmation of the incident.

From the foregoing, the report is deemed false and should be disregarded.

As always, the Kaduna State Government and security forces do not live in denial of security challenges. However, it is unhelpful and unpatriotic to thoughtlessly spread false reports.

The security forces keeping constant watch on the Kaduna-Abuja Road and the general area will continue to sustain efforts towards citizens’ safety and security. The Kaduna State Government will equally remain open, engaging and providing support for peace and security.
