Telecom Networks Restored in Kaduna After Two Months Ban

The Kaduna State Government has announced the restoration of telecoms networks in parts of the state initially shut down since the beginning of October.

The Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan told newsmen in Kaduna on Friday that, “Security agencies have notified the government that telecom services can be restored.”

Telecoms networks had been shut down in the state in a bid to control banditry and other insecurity issues in the state.

According to Aruwan, the shutdown of the telecommunication network recorded a lot of success.

The Commissioner assured residents that restoration of full services would be felt over the next few days.

“Along with the other measures in the security containment order, the telecoms shutdown had helped the security agencies to achieve some results, which the security forces will reel out soon.

“The prolonged application of this measure was always out of the question, due to its impact on the legitimate activities of citizens and businesses.

“Residents are advised that the restoration of full services in the affected areas may unfold over a few days, as the service providers mobilise to power and boost their transmission systems accordingly.”

He added, “The Kaduna government regrets inconveniences that residents may have passed through. The state government wishes to commend the sacrifices made by residents while this temporary measure lasted.”

Aruwan explained that other measures like the prohibition of movement of motorcycles all over the state, sale of fuel in Jerry cans, weekly markets, and others in some local government areas remain in place.
