The Kaduna State Government has lifted the three-month telecommunications shutdown it imposed in October in several local governments due to resurging attacks by bandits along the Kaduna-Abuja road.

 

The State Government through the Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, who announced this on Friday, said the relevant government agency in charge of telecommunication has been directed to lift the ban.

 

The state government had on the request of security agencies directed the National Telecommunication Commission (NCC) to shutdown telecom service in selected local government areas of the state.

 

While the ban was imposed to curtail insurgency, there was upsurge in banditry, especially along the Kaduna-Abuja road, during the ban.

 

Aruwan said other measures like the ban on motorcycles, ban on weekly markets, selling of fuel in kegs remain in force.
