The state took the measure in September to combat bandit criminal activity in the state.

“The government has been notified by the security agencies that telecoms services can now be restored.”

The telecoms shutdown, along with the other measures in the security containment order, had helped the security agencies achieve some results, which the security forces will reel out soon, according to Aruwan.

According to the commissioner, full-service restoration in the affected areas could take a few days as service providers mobilize to power and boost their transmission systems.

The Kaduna State Government expressed regret for any inconveniences that the shutdown may have caused residents in the affected LGAs and commended them for their sacrifices while the temporary measure was in place.

Other measures announced as part of the security containment orders are still in effect, according to the government. Motorcycles are prohibited throughout the state, weekly markets are prohibited, cattle transportation is prohibited, and the sale of fuel in jerrycans is prohibited in certain local government areas.
