Kaduna State Government has said no Chinese expatriate was killed in any part of the State. “Contrary to reports by some media organizations”, we wish to clarify that no Chinese expatriate was killed in any community in Kaduna State.
The Director General Media and Publicity to Kaduna State Governor, Ahmed Maiyaki explained that the report of the killing which indicated that a Chinese expatriate was killed in a village in Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State was erroneous and a wrong editorial judgment on the side of the media organizations that published the story.
“Our findings reveal that some Chinese expatriates were attacked in Riyom Local Government Area of Plateau State and not Kaura Local Government of Kaduna State as wrongly published by some media organizations”, the DG Stated.
He said “while we continue to respect the freedom of the press to independently function, it is our hope that it is also a fundamental ethics of the profession to clarify all information before going to press”.
Maiyaki called on the entire people of Kaduna State to ignore the erroneous story and to continue to go about their lawful businesses without fear of intimidation, explaining that the State Government assures all citizens of adequate security measures to protect lives and property.
