Amid the agitation surrounding the demise of Deborah Yakuku and the ensuing protest in Sokoto State, Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai has banned religious protests in the state.

The development was made known in a statement by the Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs in the state, Samuel Aruwan.

Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State imposed a curfew following the protest that erupted and coming on the heels of that directive, El-Rufai in the statement released stated that some “unpatriotic elements” planned to organise a “series of for-and-against protests” related to the incident in Sokoto.

"The Kaduna State Government, in consultation with security agencies under the umbrella of the Kaduna State Security Council, has placed a ban on protests related to religious activity throughout the State with immediate effect.

"This prohibition becomes imperative in view of moves by some unpatriotic elements to organise a series of for-and-against protests related to a security development in one of the Northern Nigerian States.

"Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai who has been briefed on the development has charged security agencies to ensure strict enforcement of this ban against any form of religious protest in the State.

"The Governor also charged religious leaders, community leaders, and traditional rulers throughout the state to complement the efforts of government and security agencies towards the maintenance of peace and stability.

"Security agencies have thus resolved that any attempt by individuals or groups to disrupt the peace and stability of the State, by way of religious protests, will not be condoned.

"Such protests will be promptly halted, and conveners prosecuted.

"Citizens are implored to remain calm as they go about their lawful pursuits, and to immediately report any such activity or security concern to the Kaduna State Security Operations Room", the statement reads.
