Kaduna state Government has ordered the restoration of communications Network service in all affected areas in the state.
This was made known during a press briefing by the commissioner, ministry of internal security and home affairs, Samuel Aruwa, at the Nigeria Union Of Journalists (NUJ), Kaduna.
He said that the Kaduna State Government has contacted the relevant federal agencies to effect the immediate restoration of telecommunication services which were suspended in some local government areas.
Security agencies had requested the shutdown in October 2021, among other measures, to assist ongoing operations against armed bandits and other criminals.
The security agencies have now notified the government that telecoms services can be restored.
“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.
“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,” the commissioner said.
The Kaduna State Government says it regrets the inconveniences residents of the affected LGAs may have encountered as a result of the shutdown.
