Insecurity: Nigerian Army gives update on Abuja-Kaduna road

-

The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has said that recent media reports that motorists had abandoned the Abuja-Kaduna highway because of insecurity are misleading.

DHQ had on Saturday led journalists on a tour of the road from Abuja to Kaduna to ascertain the validity of the claim.

NAN reports that there was a normal movement of various types of vehicles on the road from Zuba to Kaduna.

Maj.-Gen. John Enenche, the Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, said the tour was to enable the journalists to have first-hand information on the security situation on the road.

Enenche said the tour was to also correct the purported desertion of the road and assure motorists of their safety.

“People are being misinformed, and there is no truth whatsoever that the road is deserted.

“We are telling the general public that they should have confidence in the armed forces and the operation that is going on here and go about their normal business.

“We are there to protect you and to continue to take the criminals out of their enclaves and just be waiting for them on the road,” he said.
