The Kaduna state government has re-imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew on the troubled state as renewed violence erupted in the state, Tuesday morning.

Sporadic gunshots were heard in the city, morning as some youths took to the streets burning tyres and allegedly destroying a Church.

A statement by the media adviser to the state governor stated that “in view of certain new security challenges that came up today, and based on the need for the state government to continue with its responsibility of safeguarding the lives and properties of it citizens, the state government is hereby re- imposing a 24 hours curfew in all parts of the state.”

“Consequently, everybody is strongly advise to go back home now, while security agencies continue with the task of ensuring total peace in the state” the statement concluded.

    It was the amalgamation of 1914 that put Nigeria into this mess because of our colonial master selfish interest.
    The only solution to our country is a peaceful DIVISION: Let there be Odu’a State, Biafira State, Arewa State and Niger Delta State.
