In a statement signed by Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s spokesperson, Samuel Aruwan, said the state is concerned by reports of violent clashes between the outlawed movement and security agencies in a neighbouring state.
Aruwan said that Kaduna State has put the security forces on alert against any threat to peace.
The statement said: “The Kaduna State Government has warned members of the proscribed Islamic Movement in Nigeria to steer clear from the borders of the state. Security agencies have been alerted to arrest and prosecute anyone found demonstrating or carrying out a procession within the state in the name of an outlawed group.
“The government will not shirk its duty to enforce the law and uphold order. Security agencies have been directed to mount surveillance in all parts of the state, especially in border communities. Procession from any state into Kaduna by members of an unlawful society is not allowed.
“Residents of the state are advised to alert security agencies of any procession by members of IMN in any part of the state, especially from Kaduna communities close to the borders of neighbouring states.” the statement.
