Kasuwa Magani Violence: Number Of Dead People Reaches 35

Nigeria's Kaduna state: 55 dead after row at market

He also advised the residents of the area to remain calm and embrace peace as the state government and local government are trying their best to bring development to the area.

The Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has declared curfew in Kaduna town and environs as Kasuwan Magani violence spread across parts of the state.

He said, "Twenty-two suspects directly involved have been arrested and now in Police custody and some of the prominent personalities kidnapped during the incident have been rescued by the Police".

A similar fracas, which occurred in the same Kasuwan Magani in February between Christians and Muslims, led to the killing of 15 people while property and other valuables worth millions of naira were destroyed.

Acting DCP Jimoh Moshood, the Force Public Relations Officer, disclosed this while addressing newsmen on the violence on Sunday in Abuja.

Mr Abdul-Rahaman said mobile and conventional policemen, as well as a team of the state joint security operatives, Operation Yaki, despatched to the town had restored normalcy in the area.

Police have not commented on the development in Kasuwan Magani.

Moshood said the police will carry out twenty four hours surveillance and patrol, stop and search and continuous raids of identified criminal hideouts and black spots.

"A number of people were also killed".

He enjoined traditional rulers, religious leaders, politicians, parents and guardians to support the police in the discharge of their responsibilities.
