El-Rufai Lauds Deployment Of Special Forces To Southern Kaduna

Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai of Kaduna State has expressed optimism on the deployment of Special Forces to Southern Kaduna to contain security challenges in the area.

He made this known while addressing the Special Forces who arrived at the Sector 7 Headquarters of Operation Safe Haven in Kafanchan on Friday.

The governor, who was represented by the Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, was received at the base by the Commander Sector 7 Kafanchan, Colonel David Nwakonobi.

He said the state government will continue to place a premium on security as the backbone of sustainable development.

“We came to formally welcome you to Kaduna State, and Southern Kaduna in particular after your induction.

“You are courageous and outstanding officers who have done well in Faskari, Batsari, and other flashpoints in the country.

“The Governor is pleased with your deployment and optimistic that you will do well in consolidating the gains already achieved by troops, police, and other security agencies in this general area,” he said.

He further added that the state government was already conducting a series of engagements with traditional rulers, religious leaders, community leaders, civil society, and other agencies.

El-Rufai appealed to the people to desist from taking laws in their hands, adding that: “Failure to recourse to the law only worsens the situation at hand, and as such, citizens must resort to available lawful means for arbitration and amicable resolution of grievances.”
