Governor Nasir El-Rufa’i of Kaduna State has commended the security forces for their prompt response to the attack by suspected terrorists at its International airport.

El Rufai through its State’s Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan also expressed sadness at the report of a casualty, sending his condolences to the family of the victim.

Aruwan in the statement noted that gunmen invaded the airport earlier on Saturday, disrupting the operation of the airport services.

The incident had caused the death of a staff member whom the state government revealed to have been shot by the assailants.

“However, the bandits, unfortunately, shot and killed a staff member stationed at the perimeter fence who raised alarm on sighting them,” the statement read.

Aruwan added that aside from those around the airport’s vicinity, “Troops stationed within and around the airport responded and repelled the attackers”.

He also noted that the airport operations had resumed with scheduled flights departing after the incident.

Aruwan further said security forces were conducting operations in the airport general area, and “further updates will be communicated to the public”.
