Jalige said the deployment followed fracas which led to the loss of lives and destruction of properties in Agban/Adan villages of Kaura LGA of the state on March 21.

He explained that the deployment became necessary considering the volatile nature of such clashes in the past and attendant consequences.

Jalige added that with the subsequent declaration of curfew by the Kaduna State Government which covered Jema’a and Kaura LGAs, the situation had been brought under control.

He said that the Ag. Commissioner of Police, Kaduna Command, DCP Maiyaki Baba, had directed a full-scale investigation of the incident.

“The Ag.CP, while condoling the good people of the State, particularly families of those who lost their loved ones in the unfortunate incident, warns those inclined to foment trouble, to desist as the long hand of the law will catch up with them, “he said.

The police further called on communities to be law-abiding and comply with the curfew imposed as violators of the order would be made to face the consequences of their actions.

He explained that the curfew was not meant to punish but a strategy to safeguard lives and property.
