Kaduna State governor Nasir el-Rufa’i, on Thursday said any group that issues threats to any citizen living in Kaduna will be arrested and prosecuted.
El-Rufa’i disclosed this in his office while receiving the leader of the Anglican Communion in Nigeria, Most Revd. Henry Ndukuba.
“We are aware that there are groups that are meeting in Kaduna and addressing a press conference and they are free to do that; the freedom of expression is guaranteed in the Constitution. However, if they issue any threat to any citizen of Nigeria living in Kaduna State, they will be arrested on the spot and we will prosecute them vigorously”, the governor warned.
“We will not tolerate anyone threatening anybody in Kaduna state; and that is what we expect every other governor to do in his State”, he emphasised.
Bishop Ndukuba noted that Nigeria is passing through one of the challenging times in its history, adding that “the impact of coronavirus on our economy, our social relationship and even other activities is quite a challenge”.
