Malam Nasir El-Rufai, the Governor of Kaduna State, has declared an immediate ban on all forms of religious protests in the State following a protest in Sokoto State.
The Governor made this known in a statement issued on Saturday through the commissioner of internal security, Samuel Aruwan.
El’Rufai noted in the statement that the ban had became imperative “in view of moves by some unpatriotic elements to organise series of for-and-against protests related to a security development in one of the northern states.
“The ban comes in the wake of a violent protest in Sokoto state over the arrest of the suspected killers of Deborah Samuel, a female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education.” The statement read in part.
Deborah Samuel was the Christian student that was accused by her colleagues at the institution for blaspheming against the Islamic prophet, Mohammed, and consequently burnt to death in broad day light.
Details of this development will be brought to you as more information emerges.
