Bomb Attacks: Zaria remains calm

Zaria has remained calm and peaceful in spite of explosions which rocked two churches in the town on Sunday morning.

A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) who went round the town reports that people were seen moving freely but with some shops under lock and key.

It will be recalled that the Kaduna State Government imposed a 24- hour curfew on the state on Sunday.

Speaking with NAN on the development, the Interim Management Committee Chairman of Zaria Local Government, Alhaji Umar Ibrahim-Rabagaddama urged the people to remain calm.

He said that government was doing everything possible to protect their lives and property and urged them to report any suspicious persons to appropriate authorities.

Also in a telephone interview, the former Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Zaria chapter, Rev. Halilu Ishaku appealed to people to be orderly.

He charged Christians not to take the law into their hands and urged them to continue to “love their neighbours as themselves’’.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in Kaduna state, DSP Aminu Lawal said that investigation into the incident had begun. (NAN)
