The Assistant Director, Army Public Relations, 1 Div., Nigerian Army, Col. Musa Usman, said in an interview with journalists that the raid was not intended to humiliate anybody.
He disclosed that a number of arrests had been made, adding that some of those arrested had been released after thorough screening.
“It will be a continuous activity meant to fish out members of criminal gangs in the city.”
Soldiers on Friday and Saturday conducted house-to-house search at Kwaru and Angwan Yero areas of Kaduna and allegedly arrested more than 70 people, including women.
The areas are located within the vicinity of St. Rita’s Catholic Church, where a suicide bomb attack on October 28, killed eight persons and injured more than 145 others including the parish priest, Rev. Fr. Mathew Goni.
