One of Kaduna’s built tourist attractions is the Kajuru Castle, which is a similitude of castles built in European cities. Oftentimes, northern states are being badmouthed by journalists and even the inhabitants of the region. The negative broadcasts by the media and people living in several States have in many ways tamed Kaduna to be seen as insecure; home of insurgents.
