The Kaduna State Government has banned the movement of some animals, to and from the State.
The animals include goats, cattle, donkeys and birds. The ban, according to the government, is to help deal with the menace of insecurity in the State.
This was made known by the Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan on Thursday.
Mr Aruwan explained that after “wide consultations and thorough security reviews,” Mr El-Rufai’s government banned the transportation of livestock from the state to other parts of Nigeria.
“Both bans take immediate effect, from today, September 2, 2021,” said the statement. “The government also wishes to reiterate that the transportation of donkeys into the state is a criminal offence, and anyone found engaging in this will be prosecuted accordingly.”
