He said that the command was concerned by incessant complaints of non-compliance of the lockdown down order imposed by the Kaduna State government which was still in force.

“Credible intelligence survey revealed that Millennium city and Kigo Road were among the black spot identified by the command and thus we decided to storm the areas.

“The lockdown order which is still in place requires that all bars, clubs, schools and worship centres remain closed until further directives,” he said.
