As if that was not enough, the military men again, today, mobilized and went back to our Goron Dutse WRECA outstation and brutalized any personnel on site, vandalizing our vehicles and those of the public under our custody and also went to filling Idi all in search of our men.

We condemn in the strongest terms these attacks by soldiers who just passed out and newly posted to Kano which is become a yearly thing.

We have good relationship with them in the state and we hope they will take necessary measures to address this issue.

We also thank the police who swiftly moved into action arresting some of these rampaging soldiers and the public who came to the rescue of our men from the soldiers brutality.

KAROTA shall continue to operate within its space according to the laws that set it up and shall arrest any person who violates the traffic regulations of the state.
