To prevent Boko Haram attack, El Rufai bans public Sallah celebration

Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai, has banned all forms of social gathering during the Eid-el-Kabir celebration.

To ensure optimum security in the state during Sallah holiday, the state government has directed that recreational centres and/or amusement park should remain closed.

The directive was communicated on Wednesday, by Samuel Aruwan, Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity, to El-Rufai.

The statement said:

“All parks and recreational centres, including Gamji Gate Park, the Amusement Park, Kaduna, and other related places will not be opened for social gatherings.

“The Murtala Muhammad Square, Kaduna, will, as usual, host the Eid prayers. It will, however, not be opened for any social gathering or celebration except for the Eid prayers.”


“Government regrets any inconvenience that may arise from such restrictions and security activity.”

“The people of Kaduna State are encouraged to report to the nearest security agency any suspicious persons or groups engaging in unusual activity.

“The state government wishes the Muslim Ummah successful and hitch-free Sallah celebration throughout the state.”
