Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai said his government will procure drones and install closed-circuit televisions (CCTVs) in response to the violent attacks in Southern Kaduna.

El-Rufai made this known in a statement he signed on Monday after meeting with the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Revd. Supo Ayokunle, and other CAN leaders in Kaduna.

He stated that these CCTVs will be installed in phases in Kaduna, Kafanchan, and Zaria metropolitan areas, as part of his government’s efforts to strengthen security forces and restore calm in the crisis-torn communities.

“Since last month, the state government and security agencies have been working to contain an upsurge in violence and needless killings in parts of the state. We are deeply saddened by the loss of lives in a totally unnecessary frenzy of communal attacks, reprisals and revenge.

While we mourn the dead, our immediate focus remains to stop the cycle of attacks and reprisals. We remain committed to ending the legacy of violence that has blighted the state for 40 years, needlessly taken many lives and curtailed the life chances of others.

“We will continue to support the security agencies to restore calm in the affected communities. Over the last five years, we have invested heavily in the security sector. We have consistently provided vehicles and other logistics support to the security agencies that are deployed in the state.

“We are also addressing the technology side of security, through the procurement of drones, the award of contracts to install CCTVs in phases in Kaduna, Kafanchan and Zaria metropolitan areas, build a command and control centre and establish a forensic laboratory,”
he said.

This is coming barely 24 hours after Governor El-Rufai alleged that Southern Kaduna leaders were lying about the situation of things in region, adding that he would ensure they were arrested and duly prosecuted for prolonging the crisis.
